Review: Schulte & Herr

By BRIAN DUFF  |  November 2, 2011

Also efficient, but with a light touch, is the service at S&H. Food arrives quickly given the great care that seems to go into its preparation. They have found a very pleasant waitperson who knows German cuisine and culture, as well as the language, which makes her pronunciations of the dishes instructive. She clearly cares about the venture in a way that reminds you how much a single great server can help make a new place seem full of promise, like that kid Will in the early days of Miyake, and the woman who worked Bresca's dining room for its first few years.

Schulte & Herr is certainly as full of promise as any new Portland venture in the last few years. Let's hope it stays around for a long time, sticking to its core strengths even as it grows and changes.

    India, like the American university, is mostly in the news these days for its bloated and ineffective administration and an epidemic of underprosecuted sexual assault. But let’s not give up on either—India or college—as a source of wisdom and repository of culture.

    Though they offer an appealing moral clarity, in practice zero tolerance policies have ruined any number of urban schools, fragile marriages, and card-marred soccer games. Zero tolerance almost ruined Portland a few years back, too.
  •   BITING INTO THE FANTASY  |  July 10, 2014
    Is it a sign of the shallowness of our national culture that we have spent half a decade excited by the idea of food served from trucks? Sure. But is it a symptom of some deeper condition? I suspect so. This summer offers a chance to investigate thanks to the arrival of a critical mass of food trucks around Portland, along with the film Chef, about a restaurant chef who starts a food truck.

    The barrel roofed train-car looks incredibly good given it’s nearly a century old.
