The Portland Mercury's annual food issue, this year paired with the sumptuous theme of "sex" (and illustrated, hilariously, by vegetables doing it with each other), hands out its share of accolades (including its Sexiest Restaurant awards — winners include Olympic Provisions, Biwa, and Le Happy). But the juiciest kitchen confession: The real-life restaurant hookups, as told by Portland chefs.
Included in the piece: The marriage-ending love triangle that made John Gorham's Toro Bravo look like the set of The Young and the Restless; the Country Cat's Adam Sappington admits to having "some sexual experiences" in the Wildwood kitchen; and Naomi Pomeroy talks about making out on the butcher's block at Beast. Sexy?
