Here is what I think about when I think of Portland. Tattoos. Micro-brewery pubs. The Willamette Valley a mere 45 minutes away. The less fashionable Eastside with six distilleries like New Deal. And hidden restaurants like Le Pigeon. Murray at Great Wine Buys put me on it. What was it before becoming the worst kept secret for where to get a great meal in town? I'm betting thrift store. Nothing chic here. Just a long community table for 10, a handful of regular tables, the kitchen and the very good wine list. This brand of low tech "sustainable" DIY glam is exactly what makes this city so great.February 13, 2012 Like Add a Comment
