First of all thanks to Danielle (via Jim) for hooking us up with short notice seats for tonight.
Very small, intimate restaurant that like other great restaurants in the Portland area try to source as much as they can from local farmers and foragers. We are delighted with the fresh offerings, and again, so pleased that such great raw material comes from our virtual back yard.
We started off with a polenta small plate and a mushroom toast appetizer that were both full of flavor, very creative and unusual. These little dishes really set the table for the entrees. She had rib eye which was one of the most tender, tasty pieces of beef we have ever experienced. I went with the braised pot of the day which was beef done with olives and other goodies on a bed of pasta that was cooked al dente. I was not starving so went with the smaller portion (nice touch, that) and it was just perfect for me. Amorosso wine for both.
Our waitress Katie (or Katy, apologies in advance for getting it wrong) was right on top of things and really wonderful all around.
Only about 30-35 seats in this little slice of foodie heaven and all were occupied when we were there. Super friendly staff, great place for a quiet dinner. Definately want to work our way through this menu. Bravo!
