what to eat at 555 in Portland?

laurmb | Aug 8, 2007 07:12 PM

I'm in grad school and have two young children, so I only get to spend a good chunk of money on eating out once a year - my birthday. It's coming up, and I'm looking for some help. Last year we went to Fore St. My husband's pork was sublime, my fish was okay, and the bread was ridiculously wonderful (but then Standard is my favorite bakery). This year, I decided I'll try 555. My question is, to those who've been there, what does the chef do best? What should I order to really make the most of my yearly outing? I know the menu changes, but I'm looking for his overall strong areas. No restrictions - I'll eat anything. Also, I'd toyed with the idea of hitting Hugo's for the bar menu first, but was told that you should really do all the courses at 555. What do you think? Thanks!
