Critical Mass


In a busy week for restaurant-review-readers, a quartet of positive missives hit the presses this week. The Mercury's Tony Perez gives props to Grain & Gristle for balancing accessibility with destination dining; the O's David Sarasohn gives Lake Oswego's Scratch a B rating (its "menus resembling a 1970s wedding reception" presumably are a good thing). Over at WWeek, Ben Waterhouse counts among Little Bird's many highs a share of misses (in a rare mixed review for Gabe Rucker's downtown bistro). And over at Portland Food & Drink, Roger Porter throws down a rave, declaring Southeast's French bistro St. Jack to be "best restaurant to open in Portland in the past year."
