The latest crown jewel in Portland's epicurean scene, Ox approaches Portland food with an Argentinian flair. While heavy on meat from the grill (Uruguayan Beef Ribeye, Lamb Shoulder Chop, Maple-Brined Pork Loin Chop), Ox also fires up the vegetables such as the Coal-Roasted Artichoke. If possible, save room for dessert.
If there is a more sure-handed grilling restaurant anywhere, with a more masterful hand at both meat and vegetables, I'm sure I don't know about it. Bring your appetite, and don't miss out on the lamb. Chef Greg Denton is a true master.
Meat lovers rejoice! This place struck a home run ~ loved the food, space, service and cocktails. No reservations but they have a great cocktail bar next door at the Atelier to keep you happy while you wait!
This widely worshipped Northeast hotspot is many things to many people—a highly evolved steakhouse, surprising source of superb plant-based dishes and allergy-friendly desserts, purveyor of exceptional cocktails, aaand, originator of some of the best, richest, most memorable chowder you will ever eat. And I eat a LOT of chowder.
From beginning to end the night was fabulous. Wait ( inevitable) for your table next door at the OX bar, then prepare for an a fabulous meal of roasted potatoes with horseradish sauce, skirt steak cooked to perfection, house-made chorizo and don't skip dessert! Oh and be sure to try the Dirty Grandma martini made with pickle juice.
