Little Bird

219 S.W. 6th Ave.
Portland , OR , United States
(503) 688-5952

Gabriel Rucker’s second spot, the Little Bird, opened in 2010 in a two-level space in downtown Portland with pressed-tin ceilings, butcher paper–topped tables and French-inflected dishes that are a notch more accessible than the offal-heavy food at his flagship Le Pigeon. Here, he prepares classic bistro dishes and the tightly focused wine list consists of all French labels, plus French-inspired local wines, like a private-label white by the Willamette Valley’s Belle Pente.
