Noble View

NOBLE ROT was booked without hesitation this month as our Dinner Club selection. It has been on our list of musts for sometime and we were not disappointed.

The design and decor alone is worth a visit not to mention the extensive wine selection. Add this to the great food and wonderful view and you have a definite Portland must!

After our salad and soup course, we enjoyed a real variety of dishes from the ultimate comfort food, Macaroni and Cheese to seared Cod but the absolute favorite was the creme brulee which Kevin thought was the best he had ever had (and he has had a few!).

Seared Cod in broth of Leeks, Shrimp and Celery

Pork Chop with Chorizo Polenta and Peas with Romesco Sauce.

Grilled Flat Iron Steak served on Asparagus with Blue Cheese Sauce and French Fried.
 I was limited in my choice as I cannot eat shrimp or oysters and I rarely order chicken or pork when out so this left the Flat Iron Steak which was a little difficult to chew. The fries, however, were perfect. John was also disappointed in his Pork but Kevin thoroughly enjoyed his Cod and also his crab cake for starters.

Our desserts were paired with flights of dessert wines which was a real treat.

A wonderful after dinner treat, we stepped onto the balcony to enjoy this amazing view.
