Raclette Thursdays at NW 22nd

We’ll crank up the raclette machine at 4:00pm, and serve the melted Reading Raclette cheese over sliced flat-iron steak,  roasted Yukon gold potatoes, and cornichons with an arugula salad on the side. We are also offering wines by the bottle that are perfect for this dish, including some white wines this region (Savoie). $17.95.

Cool nights, hot cheese!

The Prettiest Cake We Ever did Bake

Popularized by the Parisian bakers of the 1800’s, the Bûche de Noël is the pride and joy of our pastry team and has been the centerpiece of many Portland holiday meals for almost 30 years. Order one today.
