Sensational Meal and Everything at Street and Company, Portland

After a terrible meal at The Grill Room Portland a day earlier, we decided to take a flier on Street and Co. and we ended up flying high because this restaurant is incredible!

The restaurant is clean, the waitstaff is friendly and professional, and the food is ridiculously fresh and well prepared.

We got Grilled Fresh Sardines with Fennel, Sea Salt and Olive Oil, which reminded us of Italy, Yum!

And although I wasn’t initially wowed when the waitress said our Bolognese sauce would have Tuna in lieu of meat, I practically licked the plate clean!
