Fodor's Review

This meat-centric examplar of Portland's cutting-edge culinary scene occupies a nondescript red building with subtle signage. Chef-owner Naomi Pomeroy, who also operates the trendy Expatriate bar across the street, has appeared on TV's Top Chef Masters and garnered countless accolades. Inside her surprisingly casual restaurant, the seating is communal, at two large tables that seat 8 and 16. The six-course prix-fixe dinner (and four-course brunch on Sunday) changes weekly, depending on the meat at the market—substitutions are declined, so vegetarians won't find Beast a good fit. Most dishes are prepared right before your eyes in the open kitchen: there might be chicken and duck-liver mousse, wine- and truffle-braised beef, foie-gras bon bons, or steak tartare with quail-egg toast. There are two seatings per night at 6 and 8:45; view the week's menu online starting Tuesday afternoon.
