As a visitor to the Portland area you may not be lucky enough to stumble upon Thirst. In fact, you may not even stumble upon Thirst as a resident of Portland. Short and simple, you need to make time to visit Thirst if you are looking for a fantastic dinner. The location isn't bad either, providing a front row seat on the Willamette River.
Our visit was a Thursday night prior to a show at Keller Auditorium. Server was outstanding, he was well versed on the menu selections including a list of local wines and spirits. He made good recommendations as well. The only thing that was better than the service was the food. If shellfish bisque is on the menu, order it, and then recommend everyone at your table order it.
