Laurelhurst Market – Portland, OR
On a quick trip down to Portland I did a little restaurant research without any suggestions and stumbled upon Laurelhurst Market. GREAT choice!!! It’s got that neighborhood feel all the while being super current and hip! Everything we ate was divine. Not one morsel was left on the plate. And because there were 6 of us we were able to order a lot of shared plates to get a better idea of what this place has to offer.
We started with the charcuterie plate which was a must considering they have their own butcher shop attached to the restaurant. Wow…that’s all I’ve got to say:) Next were the deviled eggs topped with pork belly. Really?! I think we all could have eaten a lot of those:) There was some mac & cheese, fried cauliflower (amazing!), steaks, fish and then dulce de leche cheesecake to finish…whoa!
If I were back in Portland I would definitely want to go here soon and I would feel very confident recommending this spot to anyone!
