First Look at Shima

Portland Food Heads has stopped by for a first look at Shima.

And so was my luncheon experience at Shima; not great, not at all bad, and certainly not without elements of potential. I see no reason to “rate” a restaurant after they’ve been open for a week, and I’m not even going to attempt to. I would say that with chef Shima’s confidence in serving the type of food “he likes to eat” will allow the restaurant to carve out a small niche for itself in a city already filled with options for Japanese.
