Departure chef (and sometime reality TV contestant and marathon runner) Greg Gourdet will offer a special pre-race "Marathon Menu" in honor of this weekend's Portland Marathon. For those looking to fill their glycogen reserve before race day, a four-course kaiseki dinner menu — designed for runners in mind — offers diners several choices within each course (served with chicken, shrimp, or tempeh), with options like Japanese sweet potato soup, ramen with chicken broth, and maple-ginger roasted squash. The menu will be offered this Friday and Saturday (October 7 & 8); reservations available by calling the restaurant. [EaterWire]
