Dinner At Blue Fin

Specialty cocktails at Blue Fin: Brasileira and Strawberry Fields Forever.

While staying in Portland we had the opportunity to dine at Blue Fin at the Portland Harbor Hotel.  We sampled their famous dish the Lobster Popover and, yes, it was every bit as good as it looks.  A beautiful lobster salad is served in the fresh popover made in-house daily.  You will not be disappointed if you order this.

The Calamari Fries were also excellent and a refreshing break from the rings usually served.

Seared Scallops And Risotto.  Those dots you see were actually made from a beet gel.  Delicious all around.

I went with the Salmon Ravioli, an unusual twist but also very good.

We finished off with this Key Lime Pie With Raspberry Drizzle.  It had a very strong. tart flavor, not overly sweet as is often the case and a more custardy texture than any we've had.  Don't miss this one.

The service here was excellent and, as mentioned, we found the menu to be rather creative with a big focus on seafood as one would expect in a port city.  Just a great place to dine.
