Wife and I are heading to Portland for the weekend and we had planned to eat at Wildwood. However, I read somewhere that the chef announced he was leaving and the menu has been changed to offer lower prices.
My one experience visiting a restaurant with a departing chef was horrible. Does anybody have the scoop on this?
Also, I am intrigued by the burger at Cafe Castagana. Can you get the burger at the restaurant? Conversely, can you get the restaurant menu items at the Cafe? Exactly how casual is the Cafe?
How is the food at Noble Rot? If we walk in on a Saturday night at 7:30 or so, how long of a wait will we have for a table? What is the decor and setting like? Is it boisterous or subdued or somewhere in between?
Finally, any recent Olea reports? Seen great national press, but how about some local updates? How is the wine list?
While I am asking, how is the wine list at Park Kitchen?
