One of my most memorable meals in Portland so far was from this little pub. I lost the name of it for a long time and was mortified I would not be able to ever share it with you. Even more mortifying, I would not be able to find my way back. But then I found this picture. And I rejoiced.
Thankfully, I often think farther ahead than I remember I do later. Does that make sense?
I believe you can tell the character of a restaurant by their dinner salad. If there is this much care over a pre-dinner salad, I allow myself to get excited about dinner.
Also, I take pictures of lights. I don’t even know.
What did I tell you? My date ordered these little lamb shanks. Loverly.
And, me, being the most southern northwest girl you will ever find, ordered the fried chicken. The sexiest friend chicken I have ever been served, my friend. I was not mad.
And a full bar. Life in Portland is good. Very good. I highly recommend the Leaky Roof Gastro Pub.
