FEAST PORTLAND! And Then Some!
LGP rounds up some of the best Feast-inspired specials at restaurants around PDX this weekend.
Can you believe it’s Feast Week already?! Of course Team LGP is psyched, but it sounds like the rest of the city is too! Restaurants across Portland are getting into the spirit of Feast by offering specials, Feast-inspired dishes or events throughout the weekend. Below is a roundup of Feast specials happening all over town that Feast revelers can use as a guide for places to visit and continue their celebration of Feast in between official festival events!
Ambonnay Bar will be offering a featured Feast glass pour of Egly Ouriet Brut Tradition NV for $20 a glass. Egly is hands down the best producer in Ambonnay and his wines are rather hard to get by the bottle, let alone by the glass. The restaurants that do sell this wine sell it for $150ish, so it’s quite a steal at $20.

St. Honore Boulangerie
St. Honore Boulangerie is featuring two dishes made with fresh, local ingredients: Mushroom and Leek Quiche - Fresh mushrooms prepared with leeks and herbs in the oven. Grillé aux Pommes - Slow-roasting fresh Akane apples from Hood River’s Kiyokawa Orchards for five hours in the brick oven, simply with hard apple cider imported from Normandy to create a delectable filling. No sugar is added; instead the natural sugar from the apples slowly caramelizes in the oven, giving it a unique flavor and deep amber and rose or pink color. The top puff pastry is cut in a lattice pattern, “Grillé” in French, which creates a beautiful, unique look as well as its delicate and crisp texture. 2335 NW Thurman St., Portland, OR; 503-445-4342 and 315 First Street, Lake View Village, Lake Oswego, OR; 503-445-1379
