|When I was in Portland in December we barely missed the reopening of Roe in its new location downtown. Luckily, my awesome co-worker remembered that Lindsey and I had wanted to go experience the pescatarian tasting menu and made a reservation for the three of us. It was even better than I was hoping it would be. When you walked through the door, you felt like you had entered the spot in a spa where you sip fruity water in your robe (although in this case, there weren't any robes).|
|Course 1: Hamachi sashimi with potato threads, avocado emulsion, and aged brown rice ponzu. (I seriously had to control myself from licking the bowl at the end.)|
|I am such a bread girl - especially delicious fresh bread with fancy unsalted local butter and three kinds of house infused salts to add - dashi, citrus, and anise. Simply perfect - and all the refills throughout the meal!!|
|Course 2: "Ham and peas" - cold smoked, poached nairagi with herb-pea gazpacho and radish. Amazing!|
|Course 3: Mero sea bass pan seared with lemon, "mirepoix," and buttermilk dashi veloute|
|Course 4: Strawberry - strawberry sorbet, milk crumble, strawberry schmear, and strawberry dust. A dream in a dish.|
|We ended the meal on a sweet note with these tiny raspberry macarons. *mwah*|
A truly incredible meal with friends. I will definitely be back!
