Portland has some seriously amazing restaurants. Luckily since I don’t know how to cook, my husband takes me to eat at lots of them.

This particular night, we went to Ned Ludd with our lovely friends S & C.

It is a very cozy, beautiful, small place. Very Portland.

We started with cocktails. (of course)

And a charcuterie plate

And wine.

And bacon. Holy moly, this bacon was good!!

And roasted brussel sprouts.

If I had had these as a child, I would never have refused my brussel sprouts.

And potatoes with an harissa sauce on top.

For the mains,

S & I had the pork. It literally fell off the bone.

J had the duck. Amaze.

C had the trout.

What is amazing about this place is that they cook everything in a wood fired oven.

Grade: A+

After dinner, we headed back to their place for some QT (quality time) with their amazingly adorable pooches, Julian and Jezebel.

I realize I look 12 in this picture.

And S showed us her new accordion. I am beyond jealous and want my own.

It was a stellar night.
