John Gorham PFA: First ever dinner at Mediterranean Exploration Company
PFA is pleased and honored to open another of John Gorham's fantastic Portland restaurants. The chef behind Portland's storied Toro Bravo, Tasty N Sons and Tasty N Alder opens his fourth restaurant: Mediterranean Exploration Company, and you can be there for the first ever dinner at this new Pearl gem. MEC , a mostly Levantine-inspired restaurant will be serving small plates inspired by Gorham's recent travels to the Middle East where he and Chef Kasey Mills ate their way through dozens of restaurants in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and in northern Israel along the Lebanese border.
As is the case at all PFA dinners, you'll meet Chef John and his lovely wife and partner Renee as they host you and welcome you to their new venture. Taste multiple courses with all drink pairings included.
You will also hear John and Renee talk about their favorite Portland places, and leave with gift certificates to try them!
You'll start out with a visit at your convenience to Maurice, Chef Kristen Murray's new pastry luncheonette downtown. Also one of John's all-time hangs, Ringside Steakhouse. Also, one of NW's favorite's, Serratto.
