Venue Info

A portrait of Bill Murray, as he appears in Life Aquatic, hangs above the wood-baked bar at Jacqueline, because, well, this is Portland and Wes Anderson makes great films. Seafood is taken seriously (couldn't you tell by the quicky fish mural?), and six kinds of oysters, raw and cured bites, and fried or seared shellfish await diners. Actual cooks will emerge from the kitchen to deliver a dramatic family-syle trout roasted on a cedar plank. The vegetable dishes are no afterthoughts, either, with cilatro-tangled Brussels sprouts tossed with fish sauce and crispy shallots, and honied yams served with watercress and smoked feta. French wines pair nicely with the plates, while complex cocktails like the red herring offer intriguing finishes (tequila blanco, chili liqueur, creme de cacao, coffee bean, mole bitters, whole egg).
