Afew weeks ago I posted a message asking for your favourite Portland restaurants. (thanks for all of your responses!) I mentioned that I was surprising my husband with a first anniversary dinner at Commissary, and to my surprise, I received an email from Matthew Kenny the next day. He thanked me for choosing his establishment, and wanted to know how he could make our evening special. This went beyond the call of duty, and I was touched by his generosity.
The horrific happenings of September 11 have forced us to cancel our trip across the border, but we want you to know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Could someone please take an evening off to visit the Commissary with a loved one, order a bottle of merlot, the best app, featured entree, and dessert (even though you're both full.) Savour every bite and then thank the chef for a job well done. We need to enjoy life a little more and let those around us know they are appreciated.
