If you don't do Little Bird when you visit Portland, I feel sorry for you. The food is amaze balls and consistent for 18 months and counting. For those at R/GA, JDI.
Chef Erik Van Kley serves expertly prepared takes on Parisian bistro favorites like crispy veal sweetbreads, chicken liver mousse, and cassoulet; pastry chef Nora Antene's desserts are tops.
Reflecting on a recent trip to PDX, this place stands out as my favorite restaurant by *far* and likely one of my all-time favorites
Now you can get a Pigeon burger without having to go east!
2011 James Beard Rising Star Chef Award Winner Gabe Rucker's latest restaurant. Be sure to save room after dinner for the tiny macarons that will come with your bill!
Their Manhattan Nouveau is not to be missed: 2 oz Old Grandad bourbon, 1 oz Bordeaux, 1/2 oz Benedictine (for replicating at home after you've been charmed here).
They have boneluge.
Eat up at the bar with Johnny - great drinks and awesome food recommendations
The crab and celery root remoulade is AMAZING - crisp and spicy with fresh crab. I could eat this every day with their fresh bread and a glass of wine and be happy.
Get anything on the chalk board. Foie gras, oysters, charcuterie, cheese plate, marrow bones. It's all fantastic.
One of the best meals I've eaten in Portland. Get the pork shoulder and the charcuterie!
The snail tortellini and the goat cheese and lamb gnocchi are both out of control. You're crazy not to order. Ho Lee Fuk.
Eric rocks a mean beard and great wine knowledge
Marrow appetizer. Shut up and get it or you're an idiot.
If u can't get a booking, seats are available at the bar. There are 2 at table height far left of the bar which are perfect. The French Sauvignon Blanc is really good. Try the Trout or Steak Bavette.
Le Pigeon Burger. Very good. Try it.
Bone marrow, its a must
Burger is recommended
Love this restaurant. Little sister of Le Pigeon, one of Portland's best restaurants. Open until midnight and usually not a long wait.
Charcuterie board is amazing. Get it! Great service, everything delicious.

The housemade Picon rivals the real thing!
A great french restaurant if you are looking for somewhere nice to have dinner.
You simply must
Have the pork cheek app. Amazing.
Fantastic food, even if the service wasn't...!
Try the Snail & Roasted Garlic Tortellini (via @Foodspotting)
Try the Alaskan Ling Cod (via @Foodspotting)
The Havane (refreshing but not too sweet) and the Manhattan Nouveau (great twist on a classic) are excellent cocktail choices.
Le Pigeon’s more casual sister restaurant offers inventive bistro-style food, like citrus salmon carpaccio and charcuterie with sausage and quail egg.
The food is delicious.. Menu ranges from a king salmon special which was amazing to the popular pigeon burger which was very big and juicy.. Fairly priced and you will find something you will love
The Pigeon Burger is as good as its reputation suggests. Truly excellent!
Really really good burgers!
Note: Mac & Cheese
Get the oysters and the butter lettuce salad.
Get the charcuterie plate. All in house creations that will make your taste buds go wild.
Must try the black garlic crepe with green beans and crispy onions!!
Pork Shoulder is one of the best meals I've ever had. Comes w onion rings and peach. Crab cake appetizer is also excellent (v spicy)
I enjoyed the burg...
Johnny might be gone but bartenders still know their shit and make great recommendations.
The Brussel sprouts are ridiculously delicious!
Try the salads but not the soggy fries.
Le Pigeon Burger is the best burger I've ever eaten.
Steak Tartare? Order fries.
