This small spot just up the street from Le Pigeon (and from the same team) reminds us of a Parisian wine bar because of their incredible small plates. You’ll eat things like the duck stack—pancakes topped with a duck egg, smothered with gravy, and topped with an optional slice of foie gras—and the delicious mini steam burgers, Portland’s answer to White Castle. Canard is small on space but big on charm, so it’s perfect for solo diners who want to hang out on a window-facing bar stool or couples kicking off their evening at one of the banquettes that line the wall.
