Wow.

I have taken a loooooooong summer hiatus. I didn’t really mean to, I just…get lazy in the summer. And then we did a big road trip to North Dakota in September, and here it is, October already. I honestly meant to post this before we left but time just got away from me. It happens sometimes.

So. Way back in September I was invited to a tour . . . → Read More: Hopworks Urban Brewery

Dinner at The American Local

The American Local, SE Division, Portland

The American Local 3003 SE Division Street Portland, Oregon 97214

Oh my god, I know! Two posts in one week is absolutely crazy-times. But sometimes, I take photos that turn out amazing and/or the meal was incredibly good and I can’t wait to get a post up! That is what this is.

Last Saturday we had planned to go out to dinner and our criteria was this: 1. where can we walk to quickly? 2. where is there air conditioning? Winner? The American Local!

This was our first visit (Palino . . . → Read More: Dinner at The American Local

Roost 1403 SE Belmont, Portland, OR 97214 971-544-7136

Genoa restaurant, pdx

Genoa Restaurant 2832 Southeast Belmont St Portland, OR 97214 OpenTable reservations — although, you may be out of luck at this point.

Well, in going through my archive, I’ve discovered that this is the 2nd time we’ve gone to Genoa for a wedding anniversary! Also, that I really like my new camera.

We were on vacation the week that it was announced that Genoa would be closing (Sunday, May 11th), and although I had just made reservations for an anniversary dinner at Laurelhurst Market, I swapped that out for a table at Genoa. . . . → Read More: I still can't believe Genoa is closing…

Project Grace Pop-up: Campania Dinner, Portland

Project Grace Friday nights at Trinket 2035 SE Cesar E Chavez Blvd. Portland, OR 97214 503-805-1342 for reservations (or OpenTable)

Apparently, the last pop-up at Trinket is 4/18/2014 and the menu region is Sicily. Menu details are on Project Grace’s facebook page.

Late last month we went to Project Grace for dinner. This is a pop-up that happens every Friday night at Trinket — they also do an additional Italian-American-inspired meal Tuesday evenings at Hokusei (SE 42nd and Belmont). Obviously, one of the huge appeals for Trinket (or Project Grace) . . . → Read More: Project Grace Pop-up: Campania Dinner
