It seems as if my summer of exhausting travel is finally slowing down. This is definitely one of those having fun, but totally exhausted statements we all tend to have from time to time. That said, I wouldn’t change a weekend away as they have been full of family, friends, laughs and of course lots of good food. On a few of these weekends my sweetheart and I have managed to sneak away for impromptu date nights in whatever town we happened to be in. There’s something about being in a different place that makes it just a little more romantic. I’ve heard my friends in Portland talk about Bar Mingo for years but I’ve never managed to make it there for a bite. Finally, a last minute date night in Ptown was the perfect excuse to give it a try. The meal was on point and the warm summer night dining al fresco made it that much better. Oh, and I have officially decided that Cacio e Pepe would be part of my last meal request. OMG, so good! Next time, Cafe Mingo, the sister restaurant next door. Cheers!
