My husband and I had an outstanding dining experience at Laurelhurst Market in Portland, OR this weekend.

I have a handful of favorite restaurants in the city, but Laurelhurst has been on the top of my list for a while, not only because their food is so healthy and pleasurable,  but also because they consistently serve some uncommon items I like. Take a look:

  • Marrow Bones with Toasted Soft Pretzel, Pickled Mustard Seeds
  • Chicken Fried Veal Sweetbreads with Salsify Puree, Endive & Apple Salad, Maple Gastrique
  • Shrimp & Grits with Pan Seared Scrapple, Braised Tasso, Cauliflower Chow Chow, Spring Shoots Salad
  • Steak Tartare with Vodka, Chives, Shallot, Salt Cured Egg Yolk
  • Mussels Frites with White Wine, Garlic, Pea Shoots, Herbs (more…)
