Food & Drink

I'm Chris - or Christopher - or Mr. Dean - or Master Christopher - or just plain Sir. I'm a self-professed foodie. I love to cook and I take great pleasure in all things edible. My husband and I are relatively new to Portland, Oregon and are enjoying our culinary explorations of the area!

Food is NOT just fuel!

Dinner at Ditch Plains with Matt

Last night keith and I met up with our friend Matt.  Funny story - the three of us were cast in "Into the Woods" 7 years ago with Gallery Players in Bexley, Ohio.  That's actually where my husband and I met.  So it was a fun reunion with Matt.

Spicy Pork Meatballs
We managed to find some common time and picked a location (Matt coming from the Upper East Side; keith coming from Union Square; me coming from the Lower East Side) - Ditch Plains on Downing & Bedford.  We've always loved this restaurant, and the fact that they carry Hangar Vodka (lime infused!).

Crab Dip
Smoked Mozzarella & Ricotta Fritters
Over plates of appetizers and cocktails we caught-up and laughed.  Matt is full of stories, and available for hire to any casting directors that might read this.  :)  And I was so excited about the "special" burger (that just won a major burger award - really, no joke) that I forgot to grab a photo of it.  Needless to say, the cheddar "bun" and the vodka-spiked ketchup were delicious.  And what evening would be complete without deep fried snickers bars?  I mean, we're all Ohio boys at heart.
