The Bollard has reviewed Terlingua and Slab.
Slab successfully transforms traditional brunch ingredients into imaginative new dishes with bold flavors. There are at least a half dozen other menu items I want to try. The next time I’m torn between craving the familiar and the unexpected, I know exactly where I’m going.
The Press Herald has published a review of Tomaso’s and a bar review of Oxbow.
Tomaso’s Canteen is a short walk from just about anywhere in downtown Portland and I encourage people to color outside their pre-established lunch lines and give it a whirl. Don’t be in a huge hurry so you can sit back and relax.
The Golden Dish has reviewed both Bayou Kitchen and Bao Bao.
The homies were perfectly delicious red-skinned potatoes given a nice crisping on the flat top. Two poached eggs were just right, with firm whites and runny yolks. I chose Bayou’s cornbread as my toast selection. It was so light that the bread nearly crumbled in my hand.
Peter Peter Portland Eater has reviewed Samuel’s.
We finished eating and paid our bill which I believe was somewhere around $40 buck before tip. It wasn’t pricey, but the food didn’t distinguish itself in selection or quality. Nonetheless, it wasn’t bad and was pretty much what one would expect from a neighborhood location outside of Portland.

Samuel’s is in Portland. Too bad he didn’t try the pizza, dirty wings, or irish nachos because those are what many people get there.
The next sentence says that he expects more in Portland. The posted reviews are just excerpts. You have to click on the link to read the entire articles.
Hey anonymous, maybe you should read the article, he clearly references Samuels as being outside of Portland, and then says inside Portland he expects more pizzazz. Portland is a lot more then the “Peninsula”, though for some reason people now like to draw lines between what we used to call “in-town” and the rest of the city.
