2930 Northeast Killingsworth St
Portland, OR 97211

Oh, it’s the return of Tuesday Night Dinners…and what a return it was. Tonight, we ventured out to the Northeast and Cocotte. I have to admit, I made the reservation initially because I was swayed by the promise of 1000 Open table points, but really I had wanted to try it for a while anyway, and I’m so glad we did!

Nice cocktails, great atmosphere, wonderful service and hey, I even scored the very last Poulet en Cocotte of the evening. But more on that in a bit. Here are some photos of the meal.

Outside of the restaurant from Killingsworth.

We will definitely be back again soon. All in all it was a wonderful meal. I would want to get the chicken again, but also I want to try new dishes. Hmm, we may have to go back a lot.
