Chris DiMinno runs the kitchen at Clyde Common in Portland, Oregon. No small task considering that the “European style tavern” is packed during dinner and lunch, every day of the week. Focusing on farm-to-table dishes created with ingredients sourced as locally as possible, Chris and his team consistently serve up delicious dishes like pappardelle, sausage and leg of rabbit, baby carrots, tarragon, scapes, ricotta salata and off the charts snacks like truffled popcorn. No wonder people keep coming back. Chris was Hanging with Harris.
