I'm a foodie tourist I had to try it all...

$16 CHOUCROUTE GARNIE: tasty kielbasa, brilliant bratwurst, gourmet frankfurter, delicious fried ham, braised cabbage immersed with bacon, roasted baby potatoes, and accompanied by marvelous grain mustard. Everything in that bowl was amazing. I did order a side of bread, I love my carbs and love making mini sausage sandwiches.

The kitchen is very open, grab a seat to the rightside of the bar if you want to see all the action. I watched a gal in the back spend 15 minutes expertly carving up some fresh thick bacon. Hipster chef was sauteing some shrimps and mussels to in some heavenly buttery sauce. I think all the sausages are made in house...

...I forgot to try their salamis...dang it! Next time!

Thank John P

We enjoyed the unique and creative menu, great service and cool vibe. Loved the experience, although there was quite a bit of cooking smoke in the air, which kind of burned our eyes. It did not diminish our enjoyment significantly, however.

If you like your meats cured, dried, exotic, laced with flavor, and with great presentation, you will love this industrial location on the east side of the river in the warerhouse district. Tasty combinations of various meats, sausages, cheeses (local and imported), together with salads and larger plates. The best option for the novice might be to launch into the space with five or six friends who all like meat, cheese, wine and beer, and then order the full spectrum of the Charcuterie boards, a few salads, and other delectables. A high ceiling and textured decor give this place an intimate but quiet ambiance in spite of its industrial aesthetic. Probably a "not to be missed" option for the first or second-time Portland visitor.

So the building is very old, we sat under stairs, with a reservation and people walked up and down the entire meal. Charcuterie was great especially the Brie. Great Rapini with anchovies and orange salad. Tender and tasty octopus and a entree of a sausage sampler with sauerkraut. Great service and bar and food only next time no stairs.

If you want only meat and nothing else this may be OK, but my "mixed green salad was actually a bunch of white stem reject parts of romaine lettuce with a little vinegar and mustard (seriously not another veggie in sight on the salad)
The chicken entree had a very cold potato gratin and a small amount of pesto and nothing else.
I guess if one goes here they should stick to the $60/per pound meat plates (actually $15 for 4 oz) or the cheese
if you are looking for a balanced meal or if you cook at home and appreciate mixed plates this IS NOT your place
