Recently we took a trip to Portland and Seattle and enjoyed some amazing food. Whenever we travel I always enjoy finding some time alone, sometimes its just for a little while, others times it may be a few weeks. My lunch at Måurice was that time – and it could not have been better. I read about Måurice on the James Beard Nominee list that was released as we were planing this trip. Nominated for Outstanding Pastry Chef, Måurice is a French style cafe that easily transports you to the streets of Paris. The menu is small, however, the available options are amazing. The wine list, written on a blackboard, is very well planned and pairs perfectly with the menu. The beautiful Provence Rosé with the Polenta Clafoutis with Poached Farm Egg and the Black Pepper Cheesecake was a little slice of heaven!
- Polenta Clafoutis with Poached Farm Egg
- Quiche and Simple Greens
- Nora’s Lefse w/tarragon & grapefruit kissed Gravlax, Carrot, Prune & Parsley Leaf Salade
- Seasonal Greens & Soups
- Fromage Plat
- Radishes w/butter + Oysters on the 1/2 Shell
And be sure to save room for dessert – it is definitely not to be missed!
