Oregon Grille Recommendations

Wangus | Nov 19, 2007 04:41 PM

Hey Chowhounders,

This'll be my first post (just registered) but I've been using these boards for awhile. You all helped me pick out a few places for dinner for my recent college graduation (down in NC), you guided me through where and what to eat during the past baltimore restaurant week. You helped me decide if I should brave Sofi's Crepes (absolutely should... it was fantastic) So for all that, thanks.

But I'm here asking for your help in person (mostly because I couldn't find too much info through searching). I'm taking my parents and some cousins to the Oregon Grille wednesday night. Ignoring for a moment on how devasting this is going to be on my poor near-depleted bank account, I'm looking for some suggestions on what dishes you all might recommend for us to order. I'm usually just told "it's all great", but I'm hoping to get some more personal experienced info. So I'm looking for suggestions for everything. Specifically:

What appetizers would you recommend?
How is the shrimp bisque?
What the hell is a Lobster Martini?
Are we pro- or anti- Caviar?

Favorite steaks?
Most creative/modern/daring dish?
Best fish dish (a couple of non-meat eaters in our party)?

Favorite Side-dishes?
Favorite desserts?

And of course, whatever else you can throw at me. Here's a link to their menu for those who might want/need a reminder of what they had before to see what might have changed since then: As expected, I'll be posting after the dinner to tell you guys how my experience went (I know a number of you haven't had the best of times before).

Thanks in advance.
