Chef Johnny Nunn, formerly of Ringside Fish and Brasserie Montmartre, takes on his first solo venture on NE Fremont with Verdigris, a simple 36-seat dining room for French-inspired fare. Formerly a wine shop, the candle-lit space is intimate and simple with hanging chandeliers and rows of four-tops, appropriate for the sleepy neighborhood nestled between Irvington and the buzzier North. The food is conservative, taking a traditional approach in dinnertime dishes like chicken pot pie with Oregon truffles, pork confit, beef Bourguignon, and steak frites. Brunch here is worth getting out of bed for, with dishes like croque madame, Maine lobster hash and a maple-smoked trout plate drawing a fanbase.
