Something like Sel Gris in Portland since they are closed?

leavenworthgal | Jan 18, 2010 10:10 AM

I have searched through past posts. I went onto all websites and finally picked Sel Gris to find out its closed!! I liked the sound of the chef and sitting by the bar watching him cook and yelling to the waiters to get the food while its hot. So anything else like that??

What is Clyde Common like? and how much of a wait would we have on a saturday night since they don't take reservations?

I am thinking about Paley's Place or something like it? Want a more bistro type place with good food and bar with friendly bartenders and good drinks.

Ten 01 and Toro Bravo looked good but maybe too fancy of atmosphere and food??

It's my husbands 60th b'day (and believe me we have to celebrate he is alive today....drove BMW motorcycle he bought in Coeur d Alene yesterday to Leavenworth where we live in rain and at the end snow.....what was he thinking?...)

We are leaving friday for Portland (in the car!) and his b'day is Saturday. Thanks for any help of a great, fun place!

By the way we are staying in Tigard area to do some shopping (apple store, new mac) and I thought maybe Cafe Mingo might be good for friday night?

We like northwest cuisine and pasta and husband doesn't like seafood.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
