The food looks gorgeous, Heather!!! Does the owner of the Restaurant set the red carpet when you get there???? ;-)
Loved the part of the crisantemos leaves... do you know that we use these flowers to offer to the dead people? I wouldn't mind trying the leaves, though :D
Are hushpuppies our croquetas?

2008-03-21T10:21:00.000-07:00

ZOMG! Heather, I've got to go to Portland. Like RIGHT NOW!

I really enjoyed your review and writing style. I know just what you meant about the ham muscle fibers in the jambalaya! I've seen it before.

I've totally got to try this place. Looks like a beautiful, cozy space for dining. I like that they're doing their original twists on traditional Louisiana dishes without losing the culture of it all.

2008-03-20T17:46:00.000-07:00

Hey you! If I'm ever in Portland, I will definitely try your favorite spot. :) Are you sure the stringy bits in the jambalaya wasn't overcooked file or sassafras? When file is brought to a boil, it gets stringy.

2008-03-20T05:39:00.000-07:00

Nice one, Heather! You gave up the secret!! BUTTER. Even though I live far from Portland (although I have a friend that just moved there, so may a visit is in the future?), I wished I could get to that restaurant. You're like free advertising for that place! Good post. I really liked the first picture - really nice. - amy @ http://www.weareneverfull.com

2008-03-18T23:19:00.000-07:00

Great post-I love all of the pics. They really captured the feel of the place. I would love to go here, because it sounds like my kind of place.
I would buy your book, too. Whenever you release it.

2008-03-18T19:54:00.000-07:00

Waou..looks like a great joint!
Love the laid back atmosphere and food. If i open my own place that's how i want it to look like.

Hey! I always take 157 shots to get 3 or 4 good ones. Get used to it! haha.

2008-03-18T14:32:00.000-07:00

Wonderful review and the cuisine is quite eclectic. Of course you had me laughing about the Californian transplants. And Heather the b/w treatment of the pics is great. Its more atmospheric. I really enjoyed this post... Great to see where the rest of the world is eating. Cheers

2008-03-18T11:31:00.000-07:00

Great post and pics darl. I need to come out and visit. I dont think Chicago has a place of this nature, and If they do its new to me.

2008-03-18T10:32:00.000-07:00

great post, great pictures, too. The food looks awesome - especially the shrimp.



Wow! That was even better the second time around!

2008-03-18T08:27:00.000-07:00

Jen - I sent them a link (as promised) and they're linking me on the restaurant's blog. Win! The photographer they hired for their website is MUCH more skilled than I am. :)

Sketti - Let me put it this way: it's pretty good. ;)

Peter the Greek - I know you would be a blast to eat with. This is what I was talking about when I said I'd love to open a supper club some time.

Jubilation T. Cornpwn - Dang it if our glasses didn't keep getting grefilled! The glassware did diffuse the candlelight nicely though.

Valli - I think everyone's a fan as big as me. :) Their Sunday brunch is to DIE for.

Judy - Luckily we brought a friend, so the hubz had someone to roll his eyes with whenever I ducked back into the kitchen. :D

Brittany - If you're ever on the Left Coast let's go!

Sharon - I love honey on my cornbread, but hot sauce on my hushpuppies. I know, it's silly. :)

Catherine - Gosh, I'm blushing! Get your ass out here, we'll tear some shit up.

2008-03-18T07:41:00.000-07:00

heather,
You are, quite simply, my favorite food writer. When I'm in Portland, I expect to join forces and harass the hotties in the kitchen, bitch slap the prissy dilettantes, and probably get thrown out of the joint.
Great review, great pics, I'm buying the book.

2008-03-18T06:48:00.000-07:00

Those hushpuppies look great!

I've never tried them with hot sauce. We like them with honey though... southern thing, I guess.

2008-03-18T06:40:00.000-07:00

That looked like an amazing feast! And your pictures were wonderful! Makes me want to go there, should I ever find myself on that side of the country!

2008-03-18T06:25:00.000-07:00

Yummy...pictures, food, atmosphere! It comes through great in the pictures you took! BTW does your dinner date mind the time it took to take 157 pictures during your night out? LOL!



You are perhaps their biggest fan Heather:D

2008-03-18T05:47:00.000-07:00

Looks great. I'm a big fan of the wine-glass monopod for flash-free restaurant shots (it helps if the glass is empty, though- especially as the evening goes on.)

2008-03-18T04:46:00.000-07:00

Heather, great review and style and I would eat all they threw at you, unlike the prisses beside you.

I'm also diggin' the closeness of the table seating...very communal and great for socializing.



So help me here. You like the place, then? ;)

2008-03-18T04:11:00.000-07:00

I think you should offer to put together a brochure or something for them - gorgeous photos, flash or no. And the dinner sounds to die for.
