Its coming! 50 Plates opens this month

Well, its almost here. The debut of 50 Plates is becoming a reality later this month. I'm excited to be a part of the bar staff there, as we have an embarassment of riches behind the bar. Andrew Finkelman, late of Alberta Street Oyster Bar and Grill is heading things up, joined by Suzanne Allard of Castagna fame (and at least two entries in Food and Wine's cocktail books), James Pierce (the best bartender under 25 in Portland) and myself. I'm pretty excited to be working with, and learning from all of these people and the closer we get to opening night, the more my anticipation grows.

Even cooler is that I understand that we've got one of the premier baristas in town to handle our coffee program. I've always wanted to learn more about coffee and espresso, so I can't wait to see what he has in store for us.

This will by my first time working in the Pearl and I'm really looking forward to it. Stay tuned for more updates.

Impressive bar talent, for sure...but opening a fine dining-ish establishment in this economy seems so risky right now, especially in the fickle Pearl. I hope for your sake that 50 Plates' sister restaurant in Beaverton is not a reflection of how the food will be. I'll still give it a try - everyone deserves a chance.

I live in south west portland and i love Jopa. It is a friendly family restaurant with great food! Sounds like 50 plates will be great too!

The food is outta this world, its the last thing you should be worried about (don't worry about the cocktails eithar). When I was hired by Andrew, i remained skeptical. Two months later, after sitting (and loving every freakin minute of it) through food tastings & working two parties, I can most assuredly say that I've been blown away. I'm so glad to be a part of this team, and looking forward to continue to eat, drink, and have a blast doing it.

The first threeMicrosoft Office entries tell us that Bill
earned $125,000,Office 2010 $150,000, and $125,000
for speeches toMicrosoft Office 2010 Morgan Stanley, the
Aventura-TurnberOffice 2007ry Jewish Center, and
Oracle in FebruaMicrosoft Office 2007ry of 2001 and he wasn't
even done for tOffice 2010 keyhe month. The list continues
for ten pages.ThOffice 2010 downloade book was published in
May of last year.Office 2010 Professional You may wonder, how
did Tyrrell (who,Microsoft outlook full disclosure,signs
my paychecks; pluOutlook 2010s we share the same
publisher) get hiWindows 7s hands on this illuminatinginformation?
Did he plant a molMicrosoft outlook 2010e in the Clinton campaign? Did he
take off his tailored jacket and go diving through the Clintons' trash for financial
clues? Did he consult a psychic?
