Hours: Mon-Sun 5pm-close

Mocha walls and soft light from naked light bulbs make for low-key elegance at this inviting spot, owned by Nancy Hunt and Randy Goodman. Chef Jeremy Eckel’s culinary inspiration may be Mediterranean, but the small plates and main courses are Portland all over. A would-be homey dish of baked egg and porcini mushrooms gets a lively green hit of Douglas fir tips.Goodman serves as the sommelier, pairing Oregon and European wines with Eckel’s sophisticated Spanish-inflected cuisine. His pairing style honors the regional inspiration behind each dish, hence a Basque wine, like the zippy and refreshing 2010 Txakoli from Getariako Txakolina, finds balance with anchovies that are imported from Spain’s north coast and then house-cured.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Baked Egg, Porcini Mushrooms, Douglas Fir Tips, Leeks, and Cannellini Beans
  • Pork Chop, Saffron Risotto Galette, Asparagus, Walnuts, and Parmesan
  • Roast Chicken, Chickpeas, Tomato Aioli, and Olympia Spinach
