Welcome to your Weekly Food + Dining Guide! This week, our cover feature is Quaintrelle in Portland.

Chef Ryley Eckersley has launched a new tasting menu option at Quaintrelle. Running in addition to the regular dinner menu, the tasting menu will consist of five or six courses based on the seasonal ingredients in the kitchen, sourced from local farms, ranches and waterways. While dishes will change according to availability, the current offerings include:

  • Oysters, green strawberry, serrano, herboi
  • Yellowtail, orange, fennel, hazelnut, white shoyu, nasturtium
  • Carrots, parsnips, potato, frisee, poached egg, seeds, pancetta, maple, wasabi
  • Short rib, celeriac, radish, shishito, baby mustard greens
  • Passionfruit tart, espresso ice cream, white chocolate, basil, citrus “sour gummies”

Since joining Quaintrelle in June, Eckersley has been fine-tuning his menu and service, adding more seafood, expanding Happy Hour options, and bringing in monthly live music. The tasting menu gives him an opportunity to play, and to fulfill requests from Quaintrelle’s guests.

“Our guests frequently ask the servers how many dishes they should order. So I wanted to give an option where they could abandon all decision-making and let the kitchen go full tilt with creativity,” says Eckersley. “I feel incredibly lucky that we’re in a place now where the guests are entrusting us to say ‘make me whatever you like.’”

Full table participation is required for the tasting menu, and dinner is priced at $65. Wine pairings are $35 additional.

About Quaintrelle: Located in Portland’s bustling N. Mississippi neighborhood, Quaintrelle serves cuisine inspired by the Pacific Northwest and made with passion and intention, working with purveyors to ensure the best seasonally available local ingredients.

Portland, OR — Acadia Bistro chef/owner Seamus Foran is keeping the gumbo tradition alive for its fourth year in a row, presenting Gumbo Weekend Friday and Saturday, November 16 and 17, 2018.  In honor of the Treme Gumbo Festival in New Orleans, the restaurant will serve a flight of gumbos for guests to enjoys for a limited time.  The trio of gumbos include:

Seafood Gumbo – Acadia’s “go-to” gumbo and the version most popular in New Orleans, the dish is made with a dark roux, providing the depth of flavor that gumbo is known for, balanced by a combination of shellfish and chicken stock.  Acadia will serve its seafood gumbo with shrimp, crawfish and Louisiana blue crab.

Country Gumbo – This style of gumbo is from the southwestern region of Louisiana and is more of a thick tomato-based stew. Occasionally seafood will be included, but a more typical recipe (and the one chef Seamus will use) features chicken and andouille sausage.

Gumbo Z’herbs – This version of gumbo became popular with the Catholics in southern Louisiana. Served during the Lent, it traditionally contained no meat, though ironically it did involve a stock made from smoked ham hocks. Z’herbs is made with any kind of green leaf-like vegetable one can find: kale, mustard greens, collards, chards, turnip tops, carrot tops, beet tops, radish tops, cabbage, lettuces and spinach can all be used. As Lenten restrictions lightened in the past few generations, this dish lost popularity. But Seamus is happy to offer it to balance out the other heavier gumbos with a hit of vegetables.

Behind the bar, manager Dan DuFour has been busy creating fall cocktails fit for Portland’s cooler evenings. New drinks include:

“Brush Fire” – Vodka, citrus, ginger, soda, pomegranate and torched thyme

“Nothing Toulouse” – Peppercorn gin, cranberry cordial, lemon, sparkling wine

“Far from the Tree” – Apple brandy, creole bitters, ginger

About Acadia

Located in the Sabin/Irvington neighborhood of Portland, Acadia has been serving modern American cuisine rooted in Louisiana food traditions since 2001.  The restaurant uses locally-grown fruits, vegetables and meats, as well as exclusively wild caught seafood from the Gulf coast and Pacific Northwest.  The restaurant is located at 1303 NE Fremont St. in Portland.  For reservations, please call (503) 249-5001.  www.acadiapdx.com.

Portland, OR —  Chef Ryley Eckersley has launched a new Happy Hour menu at Quaintrelle, featuring updated favorites as well as daily seasonal specials. Happy Hour service has also expanded from the bar to the entire restaurant, including the patio, and runs from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday to Saturday, and Sunday, 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.  Nightly Happy Hour is also available during the last hour of dinner service at the bar.

Eckersley’s most notable changes are the addition of more seafood to the Happy Hour menu. From chilled oysters with lemongrass, ginger and chili, to baked mussels and clams in a Dijon cream sauce with a hearty baguette, there’s a seafood delight for every size appetite. True to Quaintrelle’s mission, all the seafood is sustainably sourced and from local waters when possible. Pacific Northwest-grown vegetables still play a leading role on the menu, with new fiery-or-not Padron peppers nestled in romesco sauce, and the signature vegetable tempura consisting of seasonal produce, drizzled with chili honey and adorned with a sprinkling of pecorino cheese.

“The menu is very bright right now. It’s full of colors and fresh flavors, with nothing too heavy, which is how I like to eat this time of year,” says Eckersley. “It’s food that’s made for enjoying in the sun.”

Behind the bar, Camille Cavan has created some new summer cocktails, including the tropical and bold “Amour Propre” featuring pisco, verjus, orgeat, falernum, lemon, lime, and garnished with pink peppercorn. Her daily Prohibition Punch continues to be a favorite during Happy Hour.
