Food Porn Friday | Castagna | Portland

Friday, August 30, 2013


Le bf was so jealous of my Chicago food frenzy with the girls that I just had to oblige to his incessant whining with a Chef’s tasting experience of our very own. We even postponed our anniversary dinner to celebrate in Portland hoping to hunt down New American cuisine indicative of what the Pacific Northwest is trending towards nowadays. Enter Castagna, a modern and minimalist local gem featuring an edited array of fresh organic ingredients appealing both to our sophisticated palate while showcasing an indisputable sense of place.
 
If I could sum up Portland plate-by-plate, this is exactly what she would look like:


Pure, wholesome, and above all else GREEN!
Can't you just taste the outdoor adventures awaiting in Oregon??? 

Castagna 
1752 SE Hawthorne Blvd. 
Portland, OR 97214 
(503) 231-7373 
*Insider's tip: Be prepared for a 2 hour plus dining experience with Castagna's Chef's tasting menu. They take their sweet ol' time perfecting the dishes so it's presented without nary an element out of place. If you're in a rush (which you should never do when opting for ANY tasting), check out their daily menu instead. Featuring only a handful of the best out of the Chef's selections, you'll get a taste of the Northwest in about half that amount of time it takes to consume the whole shabang. Spend the other half bar-hopping down Hawthorne sampling the other hidden hideouts locals swear by like their TONS of famous micro-breweries! Sounds like a master plan to me! Next time fosho!* Happiest of Fridays to my darling readers and as always...

Bon appétit mes amis!
