[PDX] La Bodega

La Bodega is a new place open on NE Fremont, in the commercial building between 13th and 14th. Not much buzz on the place yet, but it looked promising. It's effectively a wine shop, with a bar. A large selection of wines with emphasis on Spanish reds, I think. I think the idea is that you can get a glass of whatever they have open, or buy yourself a bottle of something and open it there.

I scanned the food items, and it looked to be in the simple, no-cook, tapas vein. Spiced almonds, olives, cheeses, etc. Looked really good, actually. There is also a refrigerated case with a lot of exotic bottled beer, heavy on the Belgians.

The owners were super nice and eager to make it a success. It will be interesting to see if they find a niche.
