I was visiting a friend in Portland for a few days and on my first night we went here to grab a drink. My friend had heard good things about the contemporary cocktail joint. Well, the austere interior is the warmest thing about the place. We posted up at the bar and tried to make conversation with the bartender who seemed completely begrudging about answering questions or engaging with us in any way. The food menu is really limited (this is definitely not a dinner spot) and the "gravlax" we ordered bore no resemblance to gravlax. It was strips of packaged smoked salmon with dried out tough edges and no mustard sauce (I'm part Finnish so I know the difference.) Lastly, my friend's cocktail, a vodka-based one with spices in it, tasted like a child's playtime concoction. you're probably thinking, well why did she order that? Fair enough, but no bartender checked in once to see how we were enjoying out food and drink. Best avoided. Go across the street to Sonny's.
