If you want a spot to splurge a bit, whether it’s for an anniversary dinner or to celebrate finally throwing a proper vase in pottery class, go to Le Pigeon. This East Burnside restaurant serves some of the best French food in the city, but with bare brick walls, communal tables, and a tiny open kitchen, it never feels overly fancy. Along with classics like beef cheek bourguignon and duck à l’Orange, make sure to order the foie gras profiteroles with caramel for dessert.
