PORTLAND | Taylor Railworks is chef Erik Van Kley’s ode to the American railworks and immigrants who helped build them, and America. Inspired by the trains that pass by the restaurant in this Buckman industrial estate, the former Le Pigeon and Little Bird Bistro chef builds a menu that uses fresh, seasonal, local produce with a decidedly Asian influence. The restaurant is housed in an industrial building dating back to 1908 and features an open kitchen and bar loosely separated from the dining room by shelving rather than walls while the low ceilings and use of wood help to create an unexpectedly cozy atmosphere.

The “Borderless American Cuisine” contains a range of diverse dishes, with a common theme being Asian influenced American classics and American influenced Asian dishes. While you’re deciding what to order (the dishes are all able to be shared) order the buttermilk rolls which are served with cherry-smoked honey and butter. The unique yet familiar flavours set the scene for the rest of the menu. The Noodles Alla Johnny are a must order – the egg noodles mixed with strands of spicy crab and cherry tomatoes topped with grated Parmesan cheese a single grilled prawn are sublime. Another must order is the fois gras, which many have lauded as being the best fois gras dish in Portland. The seared lumps of smoked-honey-glazed foie gras are served in a smoky soy broth with grilled mushrooms and a soft quail egg with a perfectly gooey yolk. Heavenly.

The drinks list contains a focused selection wines by the glass and bottled beers, but we’d recommend heading straight for the cocktails. There’s a bar near the entrance for those who aren’t looking for a meal and cocktails are definitely more than an afterthought. As with the food menu, Asian influences dominate – try the perfectly balanced Paper Kite with wheated bourbon, Aperol, lemon and spiced tea brandy. For those who want a bottle of wine, the one page wine list contains a focused selection of bottles from the US and Europe.

The food at Taylor Railworks is tasty and imaginative, and service is efficient and attentive. A must try Portland dining experience for those looking for something a little different.
