This amiable neighborhood French bistro has all markers you’d expect—red and white checked curtains, chalkboard wine list, and baguette-stuffed baskets. And some you wouldn’t—traditional French dishes re-imagined by 2011 StarChefs.com Portland Rising Star Chef Aaron Barnett. Sommelier Joel Gunderson pairs dishes like breaded, sweetbread-stuffed pork trotter with wallet-friendly regional French finds and Oregon direct-from-winemaker gems. Pastry Chef Alissa Rozos went from upscale and luxe at New York’s Daniel to rustic French plates here. And thanks to young Mixologist Tommy Klus, there are some expertly balanced cocktails here featuring lovingly (and smartly) sourced ingredients.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Fisherman’s Stew: White Wine Fumet, Seared Scallops, Mussels, Leeks, and Trout Roe
  • Tarte à la Rhubarbe, Honey Ice Cream, Honey, and Candied Hazelnuts
  • L'Blanche Cocktail: Kübler Absinthe, Pineau Charentes, Crémant de Jura, Lemon, and Mint
