New Dishes for Spring
Spring has fully arrived here in Portland and on our menu. Some of our current seasonal dishes on our Chef’s Tasting Menu include:
Spring Terrarium with onion custard, peas, and edible flowers (pictured above)
Rhubarb, sweet cicely, molasses
Halibut, oxidized green almonds, wilted sorrel (pictured below)
To make the Halibut dish, our culinary team shucks green almonds and lets them naturally oxidize. A rich and savory sauce is made from halibut bones and brightened with oxidized sherry. The halibut is brined, dried, and gently cooked on the French top, and paired with wilted sorrel for added acidity.
The Spring Terrarium features a savory onion custard, fresh sweet peas marinated in smoky charcoal oil, a sauce made from pea shells, and spring flowers from our garden. Although light and delicate in appearance, this dish is full of flavor.
Come experience the season with us! Our Chef’s Tasting Menu is available Wednesday through Saturday each week, and our Explorative Dinner Series (more details below) is available Wednesday and Thursday.
