388 Chosen Best of Portland - 04/19/09

Best Reason To Dine On A Stool
Chef's counter at David's 388
When you go out for a nice meal especially at a classy boutique-y restaurant you want to sit back, relax, and sink into a comfortable seat for a glass of wine or a cocktail, followed by exquisitely prepared appetizers, mains, and desserts. You don't really want to sit on a wooden-seated, wooden-backed high chair just then. But there's one place you actually should. David's 388 has much comfier seating especially on the couches in the corner by the door but the stools at the chef's counter are the best in the house. Four chairs great for dining as a couple or a double-date are just inches from the chefs as they prepare the food.

Not only is this a foodie's spectator-sport dream, but it has a practical application for your ordering decision: you've not only read the menu descriptions, but seen how the dishes are prepared and served. The chefs David, Bo, and Katie are startlingly good at keeping track of the food, each other, and customer conversations, and super-friendly with explaining what's going on (though have a heart, and when they get slammed just finish your drink and order another). The action will keep you on the edge of your seat, not sinking back into it.
