Gruner Makes GQ's "10 Best New Restaurants in America"

Christopher Israel's Alpine eatery Gruner has just made the list of GQ magazine's "Ten Best New Restaurants in America."

Although GQ food correspondent, Alan Richman, starts out by taking a swipe at our food scene with the headline, "What's a Restaurant Like This Doing in a Place Like Portland?" he changes his tune quickly when he zooms in on Israel's tasty Alsatian cuisine: "The food is all about comfort, the old-world way. The chicken with spaetzle is velvet softness. The golden trout tasted golden, if you can imagine that..." He ends the piece with high praise for Chef Chris who he calls "a maverick who has brought Mitteleuropa to the land of microbreweries."
