Breathtaking Views and Yummy Food

Chad, one of the great thinkers of Portland...(he's thrilled about this pose!)Well most of you have heard, or read by now that Chad is a college graduate, so we went out and celebrated right last night! We went with my mom and Jim to The Chart House, which is FABULOUS! Not a restaraunt you could probably go every week, but for special occasions, this place is great. It has the most incredible view of downtown Portland and some of the yummiest food I have had, maybe ever!
The bill came to almost $200 for the 4 of us, but we didn't spare any expense, we had appetizers, (Dungeness crab stuffed mushrooms in some creamy white wine cheese sauce), my mom had soup, (lobster bisque-ohhhh my gosh, it was soooo good), the rest of us had salad, (the guys had ceaser salads and I had this incredible spinach salad prepared tableside) and all of us ordered to die for entrees, (seafood sampler plate-my mom, filet mignon-Jim, blackened snapper with crab and asparagus-me, and macadamia nut encrusted halibut with this, oh my word, you could swim in this sweet sauce of pure pleasure-Chad). We then of course ordered 2 molten lava cakes to share, which you have to order when you order dinner, because they bake them fresh for you-so they are warm and gooey and covered in ice cream and homemade chocolatey goodness sauce and crushed toffee on top-it was pretty much bliss.
I love going to places like this, dressing up and the whole bit. The service was great-it had mandatory valet parking, and when you pull up all the valet guys come running to open your door for you and just make you feel like a celebrity. The meals all come out in courses, and you have all these extra servers to bring you fresh water or drinks and silverware for every course-it is worth the money to be waited on like that for a night I think. We will definately go back, and highly recommend it to any one celebrating a birthday or anniversary or a good hair day....whatever! Me and my college graduate-how lucky am I?My awesome step dad and fabulous mom-so much fun to have a night out with just the 4 of us!

Congrats to Chad! How exciting and FUN to go to such a fancy place. Oh one day when we are rich we will actually get to dress up and spend $200 bucks on a meal. So jealous!
