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.

  •   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.
