It truly is the best experience with Chef Gabe is in the kitchen at lepigeonpdx I'm not 100% percent sure that he's there all the time, but when he is you feel the the famousness of the establishment. Tourists just coming in to grab a picture of him in the kitchen. The chocolates in the picture are always a delicious treat at the end of an amazing dinner. #TheEatGuide Highlights: everything!

Le Pigeon was my first foray into professionally prepared French food. The restaurant is fairly small and if you're not expecting that, it might come as a shock. It's not uncommon for you to be sitting directly next to a couple that you don't know. The seating is fairly communal. Having said that, the dishes are quite worth the effort of making a reservation. I recommend giving it a try.

Le Pigeon in Portland

    • 3.5

Portland is a city famous for many things :: beer, weirdness and awesome food.  I was surprised at the number of excellent restaurants in the small Northwest city and, frankly, overwhelmed when it came to picking places to eat during my short three-day weekend there.  Several people recommended Le Pigeon, a New American restaurant with French flair, and after discovering that it has a tasting menu (one of my favorite things), I signed right up.

Le Pigeon Beef Bourguignon

The menu at Le Pigeon changes weekly.

Le Pigeon is an intimately tiny restaurant in downtown Portland with an open kitchen, cozy communal tables and large open windows allowing for watching people walking down the street.  Executive Chef Gabriel Rucker focuses on simple dishes exquisitely arranged with an eye-catching style–and taste.  My friend Ian and I ordered the five-course tasting menu ($65/person) to get a true feel for Le Pigeon’s cuisine.  (A seven-course option is also available for $85/person and a la carte entrees range from $21-$29/plate.)  Each course was moderately sized but intensely flavored, leaving us craving for more.
