French on the Cheap: Little Bird

Little Bird is the sister restaurant of the famed Le Pigeon.  Chef Gabriel Rucker won the James Beard Award this year for Best Chef: Northwest.  I won the lottery by getting to have a wonderful lunch with my friend annyong!

The space is so adorable and so very bistro-esque.  Even though we were ordering up a storm, we couldn't resist the bread and salt-topped butter.

Housemade pineapple soda ($3.50).

Yes, it's clear, but it was totally pineapple-y!  Crazy!

Foie gras torchon, rhubarb and muscat grappa gelee, hazelnut streusel ($17).

Heavenly!  I loved this rich and creamy decadence, and I loved the fruity, tart, and nutty supporting cast.

Le Pigeon Burger and fries ($12).

annyong highly recommended this burger, and we had a fabulous time sharing it and the marvelous fries.  Really juicy and substantial.

Baguette, jambon de paris, Gruyere, dijon, greens ($8).

Delightfully simple yet delicious.  So glad annyong and I traded halves!

Bonus pics: annyong's adorable dog (too cute for words) and all three of us!

Great end to a great trip.  You rule, Portland.
