On the road again: Portland, day 4

Today's culinary highlight was the seven-course tasting menu at one of my all-time favorite restaurants, two-time Beard-winning Chef Gabriel Rucker's Le Pigeon.  Sitting at the bar, getting to watch Gabe and his team work, and then eating the resulting lovely and delicious dishes is one of those treats worth flying to Portland for.  Dishes like "Foie gras ants on a log" may sound strange, but in his hands they become amazingly wonderful creations.  I loved every single course, and I'm already looking forward to my next visit here. 

I'd write more, but I have to get up at five a.m., which is more a bedtime to me than a wake-up time, so I'm calling it an early (for me) night.
