In a glowing review of The Oregonian 1991's Restaurant of the Year, critic queen Karen Brooks wrote the following: "And Zefiro, more than any Portland restaurant, represents the shifting cultural scene. Everything about its mood and menu signifies a turning point in local culinary aesthetics."

On Sunday night, Zefiro co-owners Bruce Carey (Bluehour), Christopher Israel (Gruner) and Monique Siu (Castagna) gathered with friends, family, and former employees of Zefiro for a 20th anniversary celebration at Carey's clarklewis. Chef Dolan Lane recreated Zefiro's famous caesar salad and placed it alongside trays of oysters and other dishes that made Zefiro so unique.

The clarklewis walls were covered in hundreds of old photos, and Zefiro's ad designer, Heather Dunn, placed the bread bag she designed for just one retail outlet, City Market, next to newspaper adverts and menus that spanned the decade. Byronbeck.com, as always, has the party pics.
