Imperial Restaurant in Portland, Oregon

Portland Poke

After finishing work late tonight, I needed some dinner. So I went online and found this place (410 Southwest Broadway, 503-228-7222), which is run by a James Beard award-winning chef. It was right my alley with its craft cocktails as well as its small plates and grilled food. I grabbed a number of things like that "Portland poke" above, as well as a wagyu beef carpaccio, oysters on the half shell, and some grilled mushrooms done in bone marrow, all of which went down the hatch with ease. The seasonings could've been a tad more delicate, but that shouldn't be surprising for a place like this. I'll eat here again, especially when I want to break from all of Portland's food trucks.
