James Beard-award-winning chef Rob Evans left the fine dining world years ago to open this beloved bistro serving hand-cut Belgian-style fries with curried mayo, truffled ketchup, and other gourmet sauces, plus amazing poutine (Canadian-style fries with cheese curds and gravy), esoteric panini sandwiches (house-smoked brisket or duck confit, anyone?), beignets, and to-die-for milkshakes (with crème anglaise). The beer list is impeccable, and there is always a wait. Don’t let it deter you—no one in Portland doesn’t like this place.
