Tuesday Night Dinners Part II: Accanto & Lardo

Lardo pdx

So, we’ve been trying to get back into the habit of going out to eat every couple of weeks. So far this Summer, we’ve had really nice dinners at Bar Avignon (pictures here), Accanto and Lardo.

Accanto
2838 SE Belmont St,
Portland, OR 97214

*
Lardo
1212 SE Hawthorne Blvd,
Portland, OR 97214

Here are pictures from those last two meals. First up is Accanto.

Lardo used to be a food cart on SE Belmont, but they recently relocated and opened a restaurant on Hawthorne. I thought the food was great (but I really liked the cart too). My only issue was the drinks — I tried two and wasn’t super crazy about either. I guess I will have to go back and try again, huh? yes indeed-y.
