Le Pigeon

Le Pigeon Review

Specializing in adventurous meat dishes of extraordinary quality, this cozy French restaurant is one of the best in Portland. Changing weekly, the menu features items like beef cheek bourguignon, grilled venison, rabbit, foie gras (especially exceptional), and, yes, pigeon too, all prepared with balance, nuance, and attention to detail. Less adventurous eaters can opt for the burger, delicious in its own right, and there's always a vegetarian option as well. With exposed brick, mismatched antique china, communal tables, and a counter overlooking the open kitchen that allows diners to interact with the chefs, the atmosphere at this 42-seat restaurant is trendy yet casual. Little Bird Bistro, LePigeon's sister restaurant, serves downtown diners French bistro fare for lunch and dinner.
