I think all these small plates are ruining me. Seems like so many of the great spots to eat in Portland have a plethora of small plates as well as entrees, which allows someone like me to make a dinner out of 4 or 5 plates rather than the starter, salad, entree thing. I had dinner at Clark Lewis over the weekend and their menu is much more traditional, being aimed at everyone working towards a main entree. I was not able to break away from my land of small plates and ended up ordering two salads and then the duck confit with strawberry and rhubarb compote starter as my main. It was the perfect amount of food, and I didn’t get stuck with a huge plate of leftovers like the rest of my family did. For now I be loving small plates!
