Little Bird Bistro

This restaurant received so much hype, it’s Portland’s hotspot restaurant. We went on a Saturday night, it was a packed house, reservations recommended. The atmosphere was charming and cozy and service was friendly and warm.

Now the Food..

Starting with the charcuterie plate Features changes daily. Pork rillettte and pickled onions, pistachio truffle sausage and potato salad, foie gras brulee and apricot jam, oxtail terrine and onion jam, duck terrine and pickled cherries. The foie gras brulee was amazing! I could eat a soup bowl of it. 4.5/5

Duck confit, creamed corn, roasted mushroom, very good. It’s a filling and heavy dish so be warned 4/5

Roasted lamb ribs, grilled cucumber salad herbed yogurt appetizer. Although the portion size was of an entree 3.5/5 for the food but, for the value 4/5.

Smoked trout with almond purée. We were not a fan of the deep fried smoked trout balls. The fish itself was mashed. 2/5

Potato bacon fromage side 4/5. nice smokey flavor. everything was balanced

thing just fell apart. it was so tender. This was by far our favourite dish throughout our entire trip. 5/5

Spinach & cream & almond, this was reordered, the first batch had an overload of sodium to the point that it tasted bitter. The second order came out perfectly, it was smooth creamy and all together very good.  3.5/5
