Following my awesome food cart experience at lunch and an afternoon nap – yes, flying from the east coast to the west coast is exhausting for us flight attendants, too – I was excited to try and find a really great place for dinner, and that I did, Little Bird Bistro.
This perfectly quaint French restaurant is excellent, and if you are visiting Portland, you need to go. I was seated at the bar, where JP, the bartender, did an outstanding job. The handcrafted cocktails were delicious, I had a Le Tigre – cognac, whiskey, lime, allspice and herbal elisir liqueur.
For dinner it was Leek and Gruyere Crepes with duxelles cream sauce, mushroom salad and hazelnuts. Very rich, as it should be, and delicious. I paired it with Little Bird’s Bordeaux Blanc Wine Flight, which was perfect.
Everything coming out of the kitchen that I saw looked incredible, including the cheese board and the coq au vin. The finishing touch was the tiniest macaron I’ve ever seen as a complementary treat. It was Key Lime flavor and the perfect ending to a perfect experience. Little Bird Bistro can be found at 214 SW 6th Avenue.
