PORTLAND | Little Bird Bistro in Downtown Portland is the casual younger sibling of lauded restaurant Le Pigeon (which in considered by many to be Portland’s best restaurant). It was created as a way for Le Pigeon sous chef Erik Van Kley to ahem, spread his wings. When Van Kley left to open his own restaurant, Taylor Railworks, chef/owner Gabriel Rucker took control of the kitchen and revamped the menu to focus on what he always envisioned it to be – no rules versions of French classic dishes, with a good dollop of American influences. Unbound by the rules that define Le Pidgeon (and help to make it great), Rucker has created a menu full of interesting dishes.

The entire menu is a testament to creativity. One of the highlights is the fried chicken coq au vin – fried chicken thighs atop cheesy, creamy mashed potatoes with bacon glazed mushrooms and a dark rosemary-balsamic jus. Not traditional in the slightest, but oh so tasty. The charcuterie board is also heavenly and a bit different to most, featuring things like truffled red grapes, battered and deep fried pig’s head and smooth chicken liver mousse amongst others. It’s a must order. Fois gras of course makes an appearance, while the desserts also impress. If it’s on the menu when you visit, the cookies and cream cake is a must try.

The wine list covers the various wine regions of France, and also contains a few local beers and some fantastic cocktails. The La Vie En Rose, with pisco, Lillet rosé, pamplemousse liqueur and lemon is especially fantastic.

During happy hour, check out the double brie cheeseburger with, house made pickles, onions, and ketchup on a brioche bun – it’s only $5.00, and if you want you can have it “L’américaine”, with the French cheese swapped out for American cheese. Service is attentive and friendly, and matches the homely, intimate space with its high ceilings, nooks and crannies and taxidermied birds.

All in all, there’s really no reason not to visit Little Bird Bistro the next time you’re in Portland.
