This quintessential example of Portland's creative cuisine is in a nondescript red building with no signage. Inside, the seating is communal, at two large tables that seat 8 and 16. The frequently changing menus are prix-fixe, and you have the option of either three or five courses. The dishes that come from the open kitchen live up to the restaurant's name: there might be chicken and duck-liver mousse, wine and truffle-braised beef, or steak tartare with quail-egg toast. (Vegetarians may struggle to eat here.) There are two seatings per night; call ahead for times and the day's menus.
