Our Portlander Potluck is a ‘trust the chef’ experience, based on the current menu. Like any surprise and delight, there will be no formality, no set menus, no specific timings; as soon as dishes are ready, they will be placed in front of the guests and everyone can dig in and enjoy the variety of food that the chef has prepared. We will definitely cater to any dietary requirements, but other than that we want the guests to sit back and enjoy the good food and company (also – we promise there will be no ‘food envy’).
