Yes, the title of this post is completely true: I did try the McDonald’s Lobster Roll. Why, you ask? I know, we’re in Portland, home to many delicious lobster rolls and amazingly fresh seafood. But when you get offered an opportunity to try the roll, at no cost…it has to happen. Yes, this is a […]
For many people, Portland has become the place to be, and it’s easy to see why. We’ve got culture, the arts, and of course…killer food and drinks. I’m happy to say I finally have friends coming to visit me this summer, and I cannot wait to show them why I love this foodie capital so […]
I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite things about Portland is that perfect summer day. You go out, you eat lunch, you walk around, and just enjoy life. Even better is when you get to sit outside! I figure there’s no better time than the present to start a summer lunch series. […]

A show of hands, here: who is ready for Valentine’s Day? Chances are, you booked your reservations weeks ago, and now just have to wait. But for the rest of us? It’s okay if you haven’t. I see this holiday as an excuse to go out to eat. So maybe go somewhere that you haven’t […]
If you love the weekend, I bet that you love brunch just as much as I do. Weekends and brunch are the perfect marriage of food (and cocktails). So here’s the crucial question: where do you go? I have the answer, with Portland’s best brunch spots. You can thank me later.
In Portland, things are always going on. Art shows, documentaries being shown, First Friday Art Walks, new restaurants opening, lines out the door…the list goes on and on. Sometimes, you need to slow down and just experience something. And a date night is a great excuse for that! Whether you’re with someone or not, who […]
The title of this blog post alone should say it all, but you probably know someone that quite literally, has it all. They have fine wine, every cookbook ever published, jams from Stonewall Kitchen and don’t seem to need anything. So, here’s an interesting gift idea: cheese.
