If you want a spot to splurge a bit, whether it’s for an anniversary dinner or to celebrate having a free seat next to you on your flight with no turbulence, go to Le Pigeon. This East Burnside restaurant serves some of the best French food in the city, but with bare brick walls, communal tables, and a tiny open kitchen, it never feels stuffy. Along with classics like beef cheek bourguignon and duck à l’orange, make sure to order the foie gras profiteroles with caramel for dessert.
