The Bent Brick
If you're into a cozy oldIf you're into a cozy old brick walled place, tucked into a neighborhood, that somehow manages sound to conversation level despite the din of a full house...with an eclectic but first rate menu and service that's friendly and un-rushed...ya gotta go here....I sure will again, and again... Look out Portland... this is one place that can rival a lot of much pricier and "sophisticated" eateries while leaving the attitude behind. The menu is somewhat eclectic, but thoroughly satisfying with a surprise or two.... do not pass on the salmon chips or roe sandwiches to start...and their home made sausages....most tasty!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst visit, had dinner +First visit, had dinner + cocktails.

We also were impressed with the friendly and customer oriented service. The ambiance was pleasing and noise level was comfortable.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter experience since menu changeHubby had chorizo tacos and I had the duck breast. Both were tasty and interesting, but be forewarned that if crumbled chorizo cools at all, the texture changes due to fat content. The apple crumble dessert (fresh tasting apples, not too sweet) with Salt and Straw caramel ice cream was the perfect way to end the meal on a cold night. The smoky seared Brussels sprouts contrasted nicely with the duck. Hubby and I will definitely return.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had excellent service andWe had excellent service and the food was wonderful.
