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.

    Because music is now basically free (thanks to torrents, Pandoras, Spotifies, etc.), the only way for musicians to make money is through constant touring and related merchandise sales. Or they can appear as a judge on The Voice. Food, on the other hand, will still cost ya...

    The National Institutes of Health just published a randomized study that confirms the rumors: carbohydrates are poison and should be avoided. So how should we feel about Slab Sicilian Streetfood?

    The lessons of Lolita are that something simpler and less challenging can be lovely, and that some cheap wine could really loosen things up.
