Eating Portland: Le Pigeon

POST #    3021

D'oh! Really, really slow in getting to these images even though I told myself that I would be better about it.

One of the "fancier" places that we ate at back in our November visit to Portland was Le Pigeon, which is barely in Southeast. I say "fancier" because in Portland, there's really no such thing (or at least that I experienced). But a reservation is recommended and I think the guy sitting next to me was actually wearing a sportscoat, thus making Le Pigeon fancy.

Le Pigeon is an intimate restaurant with an open kitchen with three chefs doing all the work. We elected to sit at the bar (I enjoy watching the pros cook) for our meal. Since the meal was so long ago, I can't really remember what we ate (oops), but we had a gnocchi to start, Shannan had the fish, and I had the beef cheek bourguignon (something always on the menu). There was also a burger at the table. I do recall that we all loved our food. My dessert was a crème brulée with what I think was a coffee pot de crème.

In 2007, Gabriel Rucker of Le Pigeon was named one of Food & Wine Magazine's best new chefs.
