(new year's eve. number 25.)
The first, unofficial Secret Restaurant Portland event took place on New Year's Eve of 2009/2010. We served a simple Northwest-style Italian dinner to a small group of friends. We had cheap champagne, winter greens, garbanzo beans, bread, cheese, roasted garlic, gnocchi, salmon, ice cream, biscotti, and espresso.
The following year, as an anniversary of sorts, for our 12th official dinner, we served a "remix" of that original menu. We took the menu's contents from the year before and expanded them in a way intended to showcase our growth.
When the New Year started approaching this year, it seemed only appropriate to start planning a 3rd remix. A R-R-remix, of sorts.
