Okay, here is this evening's puzzler for my Chow-minded friends. We are planning what should be a spirited dinner of nine old friends in the Portland area. We need someplace where the food is good, the ambiance is conducive to a wee bit of revelry, but not so loud we can't hear eachother. I would rather not socialize over live music.
Fore Street and Street & Company are out, as are David's and Micheala's (too stuffy, too cramped).
I am thinking Ri Ra, unless someone can suggest something better...I am wishing that the Cotton Street Cantina was still around.
