Lunch at Heron's...

Liz and I had lunch today at Heron's Restaurant, taking advantage of the "Market Menu" that they've started running (and which was listed in the N&O last week).
The menu's a prix fixe lunch, 3 courses for $20, plus wine pairings for an additional $12.

I took advantage of the wine (Liz didn't), and overall it was great.
The menu was:

  • A Tasting of Heirloom Tomatoes (Tarte Tatin, Consomme, Local Mozzarella)

  • Cane Creek Pork & Beef Meatball with Short Rib Ravioli, Ratatouille and Fresh Chevre

  • Pan Roasted Local Figs with Brown Butter Cake, Toasted Almond Ice Cream

and the wine pairings were:

  • Waterbrook 'Melange', Columbia Valley, WA

  • Pinot Noir, Nicolas Potel, Bourgogne, FR

  • La Yunta, Late Harvest, Torrontes, Argentina

Everything was perfectly cooked, and the portions were just right. It's a little pricey for lunch after you include wine, but considering the dinner prices, I think it's a good deal, and it's nice to treat yourself some times.
