Dinner at Portland Variety

1-CollagesPortland Variety does a little bit of everything and does it damn well. From house made breads, cheese and pastries to seafood platters and fantastic cocktails, it’s all amazing.

The front of the restaurant serves pintxos- small tapas with unique twists. House made bread slathered with cheese roasted cherry tomato and a teeny anchovy. Skewers of olives and cheese. Slices of onion tart. Brie topped with eggplant. House made chorizo.

All of these bites are available to nosh on by the piece/skewer/slice.
There’s also a nice selection of sweets including giant chocolate chip cookies, chocolate bomb cakes and more treats. (more…)
