Downhill from the Red Hills which bring us delectable Pinot Noir lies a bistro whose goal is to bring wonderful, seasonal dishes to match our wines.  The Dundee Bistro, now celebrating over 10 years in the heart of Dundee, provides an excellent home for regional food and wine.

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. 

The Chocolate Hazelnut Tart with House-Made Ice Cream didn't last long on the plate.

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.

The bar at the kitchen at Dundee Bistro is cozy and the company is friendly.

You can find The Dundee Bistro sharing a building with the Ponzi Tasting Room at 100 SW 7th St #A, Dundee.  The phone number is (503) 554-1650.  It is open daily for lunch 11:30 – 5pm and dinner 5pm – closing.
