1.) Excellent food and lots of it, and at a good discount too (executive chef Rick Widmayer hails from both Mother's and Screen Door)
2.) Quality drink choices (especially in wine, and with growlers to go!)
3.) Very pleasant atmosphere outside on the charming and relaxing courtyard patio (former Carafe space), and inside at the contemporary bistro with cushioned booths.
This is a second, true labor-of-love from Leslie & Gary, the owners of Thirst, consistently one of the very best places to dine in all of Portland!
