What to expect:
This is our second cocktail-paired dinner with Quaintrelle. The first was such a hit, we couldn't wait to bring it back for another spin! Be prepared for a feast of the senses.
Seating - 20 guests at tables in the downstairs area adjacent to the bar.
3936 N. Mississippi Ave
Quaintrelle serves Pacific Northwest inspired cuisine made with passion and intention. The cuisine is rebellious, with constantly evolving concepts while sourcing only the best local, artisanal ingredients. Working with a range of purveyors, they ensure they are getting the best seasonally available local ingredients.
Chef Ryley Eckersley
Ryley Eckersley has always had a fondness for art, culture, music, travel, new ideas, academia, shared moments and experiences, so naturally he gravitated towards food and its possibilities for creative expression. Born in London, he was influenced by travels and work in countless restaurants in North Carolina, Barcelona, Manhattan, and Central America. Eckersley’s culinary style reflects his lifelong wanderlust and curiosity, and strives to invoke nostalgia, conversation and smiles, while offering something truly fun. After arriving in Oregon in 2011, Eckersley led the kitchen at Jen’s Garden in Sisters and later opened DRAKE in Bend in 2013. After moving his family to Portland and a stint at Olympia Provisions, he took over the kitchen at DOC where he further honed his style of food, subsequently filling a niche in Portland that brings together global influences with Pacific Northwest ingredients. Landing at Quaintrelle signifies all the puzzle pieces all coming together, where he can create beautiful, unpretentious dishes with as much direct connection to farm, oceans and ranches possible.
Each course will be paired with a specially made cocktail from the Quaintrelle bar.
