fenouil ou non?

i have a wonderful group of work-related girlfriends who get together about once a month for happy hour. while we have our great old stand-bys, it's always fun to try a new place. and, since we all get out between 5 and 5:30 pm, we prefer those happy hours that extend past 6.

i had been meaning to try fenouil for quite some time but it wasn't until our last happy hour outing that i finally gave it a try and i am happy to say that they have a fabulous happy hour that runs monday through saturday from 4 to 6:30 pm and on sunday from 2 to 9 pm.

fenouil opens out onto the pearl's jamison square and i can't wait to go back when the weather is nicer. however, i have a feeling, one of those outside tables may be hard to come by when portland's sun finally decides to come out. but that's ok, because the bar is beautiful and cozy, too, and sometimes i prefer the bar anyway.

there were five of us together for happy hour and their extensive menu listed enough options for each of us to pick something different. and while the portions were not very big, the prices were low and it turned out to be perfect for sharing. we each had small samplings of everything and ordered extra pommes frites to tide us over until dinner.

i highly recommend fenouil for happy hour (i have not tried dinner here, yet) and i look forward to the next girl's night out so we can go back again!
