We came here because some other choices were not open on a Monday, and we were not disappointed. It was very noisy (as are most restaurants now) when we arrived, but got quieter when less crowded by 9:00. We were seated away from the 'energetic' bar area. Tables were a little cramped, but the food was lovely -- my husband's steak was just what he asked for and I want to comment on the not-easy trick the grillmaster accomplished in getting my duck-breast medium rare. (The waiter said it was usually served medium-well, and that gave me serious pause, because I've eaten this in all sorts of restaurants here and in Europe and never heard of such bad treatment of a duck, but I know it is hard to control the doneness on a grill.) Under the duck was a well-crafted mushroom risotto and some spinach -- all just excellent. We didn't have wine, but the list looked very good. We'll be back on our next trip to the Portland area (can't eat lobster and clams every night).
