Review of Duckfat

From Away has published a review of Duckfat.

I like this place. And hopefully not because someone with credentials convinced me in advance that I would. It’s another great neighborhood place, which Portland does really well. You go to Duckfat because it meets a standard of basic excellence that one expects in a city like this. The server kids are hip and sweet, other patrons seem equally contended, and you can drink and talk and eat and laugh, as if it were your own, slightly cooler living room.

Dining Fashion Guide

Mainely Mara has posted a dining fashion guide for four Portland venues: Sonny’s, Miyake, Gingko Blue and Portland Lobster Company. (via DineME on twitter)

Sonny’s: With its eclectic atmosphere, complete with cozy velour couches, colorful stained glass and our favorite infused vodkas, Sonny’s reminds us of a different time. For this sweet spot, slip into seventies inspired pieces, like your favorite fitted bell bottoms or a flowy dress, and complete your look with wood or feather accessories!
