Octopus caught off the coast? Yes, please! That local delicacy was marinated and served chilled with a sun-dried tomato vinaigrette as a recent starter, shocking in its ultra-tenderness. This was just one of the impressive dishes highlighting the amazing ingredients from the Northwest. The beautifully prepared wild Chinook salmon with pea tendrils and fava beans was another seasonal treat. The real treat was the gracious service in this busy dining room, especially our seasoned waiter, who suggested excellent Oregon wine matches for the food. The Adelsheim Pinot gris was brilliant with the first course, and the deeply flavored, Burgundian-style Domaine Serene was incredible alongside the salmon. The menu might give potential diners that this venue is formal, but the crowd on a Monday night was a mix of casually attired guys and gals, businessmen and even a few stroller-pushing families. Everyone seemed united in their enjoyment of the plates set before them.
Tasty Thai on NW 21st. The service was good, the dishes were tasty, nothing fancy but overall tasty. Tables on the sidewalk are my preference, great people watching while you sip your Thai Iced Tea.
Quaint and quiet w/ friendly service. Located in an old restored house. Lots of art on the walls + comfy couches and chairs. Indoor and outdoor seating, incl. front and back patios.
It's hard for this Jew not to get giddy over just their bagels! If you're a latke lover and can't wait for a holiday then they've got your remedy! Sandwiches and smoked pastrami rule here but a nice lox plate puts a smile in my belly!
