Lunch with Nicholas Kristof!

Rub shoulders with two-time-Pulitzer-prizewinner Nicholas Kristof — a native of Yamhill, Oregon – at an intimate Dec 7 or 8, 2019, three-course luncheon for 20.

$500/seat benefits the Yamhill Enrichment Society entirely, the ultimate “experience” gift! New York Times rules ban their star reporters from doing fundraising events, except for their own hometown, and only to benefit education. We’re delighted to welcome Mr. Kristof home to Yamhill, and delighted he has chosen the Yamhill Enrichment Society to support.

Lunch will be at Cuvee Restaurant in Carlton, with Kookoolan Farms 100% grass-fed beef being turned into classic Beouff Bourgignon by […]

Bull Run Distillery Has Moved in Next Door!

The Surprise du Jour

A Winterborne flashback from Gilbert’s Portland Restaurant over 10 years ago.
Review by David Sarasohn

The strange thing, of course, is that Alsace has no sea coast.

And hardly any border with Thailand.

But two years after taking over the Winterborne restaurant, Alsatian Gilbert Henri has put his own impressive mark on one of Portland’s seafood specialists – and his mark extends so spicy Thai prawns. Now, he has overhauled not only the menu but the dining room as well, giving it a warm, friendly feeling.

The menu is even friendlier.

Henri has kept many of the specialties that for years have drawn maritime munchers to […]

Where Sasha Went

(A Customer’s Experience)

There are a lot of really great restaurants in the Yamhill/Willamette/Tualatin Valley area thanks in part to our robust wine industry. Up until recently, I had focused most of my time dining at restaurants in the Portland area, there are so many great places there, you could go out every night and never run out. Having recently moved out of the area has given me the excuse to branch out a bit and boy was I ever happy to have given that chance after enjoying an unforgettable meal at Cuvee in Carlton, Oregon.

The restaurant resides on the main street of Carlton, […]

Northwest Palate

The headlines may claim otherwise, but the fact is, there are still plenty of fish in the sea. From salmon to scallops to spot prawns, our trio of tireless dinners – Alicia Arter in Seattle, Diana Abu-Jaber in Portland, and Tim Pawsey in Vancouver, B.C. – have sampled them all, in restaurants great and small. Here’s their treasure chest of seafood gems.

When I tire of the madding crowds downtown, I sometimes seek our lyrical, romantic Winterborne. The buttery walls and warmly-curtained windows at this Nortest Portland eatery seem a reflection of its rich French-inflected dishes. Especially wonderful is Winterborne’s signature […]
