Curt and I often start our meals at The Dundee Bistro with a giant pile of Truffled Fries. They use Oregon White Truffle Oil to finish these crisp potatoes into finger-lickin’ yumminess.
Pastas, wood-fired pizzas and hearty meats abound in the entrée list, each dish artfully designed to highlight the season’s offerings. Wednesdays are special for Whole Hog Wednesdays… serving Pork & Pinot till the whole pig, previously grilled over mesquite coals, is gone. For dessert, there is nice selection of sweet treats, however, if you are on the adventurous side, make a your dessert choice from the artisan cheeses or artisan bacons.
The wine list is a healthy size, full of Oregon Pinots and rounded out with international choices of numerous varietals. I’ve been very impressed with wine steward Chris Berry’s knowledge of his craft. When I took my world-traveler uncle into The Dundee Bistro, he proclaimed he’d never had a Pinot to his liking. Chris took the challenge, they discussed what my uncle likes in a wine, and Chris brought him a glass that has him reconsidering the wonders of Pinot. And then we ate Truffled Fries.
