We love a good pie. And at Flatbread they do things right, organic ingredients, a hand-made wood burning oven, fresh local greens and beer. I could go for a slice right now!
We ordered a mushroom and house-made no nitrate pepperoni.
Last week's trip we discovered a tiny gem of a restaurant called Bresca, which means honeycomb in Catalan. It was recommended to us by the owners of Rabelais--a lovely little cookbook store chock full of foodie favorites old and new. There were some luscious highlights.

We were just in Portland last week for a few days. If your looking for a culinary getaway, this city is the spot. One of our favorite places to eat is Street & Co. It's a seafood only restaurant with warm ambience and really good rustic fare. We always sit at the bar for some perfect local oysters. This time we also ate a little salami, excellent linguine with clams and Panna Cotta for dessert. Delicious.
