the beautiful open dining room
today hawthorne girl had her visit to the dentist (ouch) but was very pleased that her girl friend called her to meet for lunch afterward. we decided that northwest would be a good neighborhood to visit because it would be convenient for both of us. we were tossing around ideas for lunch and i remembered the wonderful mediterranean restaurant serratto. serratto is located on a corner on northwest 21st that has housed restaurants for over 25 years in its very beautiful open space.
it was a perfect day to visit as it was so hot outside, the cool terracotta tiles made for an inviting indoor dining experience. oh it was much too hot for me to dine outside today. it's a rare summer day in portland that i don't enjoy being outside and today is one of them. apparently, this southwestern girl has become much more acclimated to portland's cooler weather! it was also the perfect location for my friend and i to talk about our possible trip to italy this winter.
serratto is another one of those restaurants that has been around for a while now so you don't hear about it quite as much in the media as some of the newer establishments but it does not disappoint. the atmosphere and the food definitely make a visit worthwhile. they are open 7 days a week and have a very good happy hour and they have several beautiful private dining rooms if you ever need one for a party.
