This is the rooster-adorned domain of 2011 Portland Rising Star Community Chef-owner Jenn Louis and co-owner, ex-NPR journalist and hubbie David Welch. Red walls, a modern kitchen, and an unassuming dining room invite you in to a sterling setting for dishes prepared with a comfort-food soul and flawless technique. Her Baked Hen Eggs, Castelvetrano Olives, and Herbed Bread Crumbs are a glorious meeting of the luxurious and creamy eggs and crunchy bread crumbs. Louis’ pasta is extensively researched, thoughtfully prepared, and reflects the vast array of pasta varieties that Italy has to offer (not just blah penne and spaghetti).

Recommended Dishes:
  • Grilled Octopus, Fennel, Preserved Lemon, and Pimentón
  • Baked Hen Eggs with Cream, Castelvetrano Olives, and Herbed Bread Crumbs
  • Ricotta Cavatelli, Rabbit Ragu, Turnip Greens, and Parmigiano Reggiano
