No trip to Portland is complete without a stop at CP. It’s one of our favorite restaurants and it can easily accommodate being gluten free.

Surprised that on a busy night, we were able to land seats "at the line" for dinner. It was delightful to watch the skilled chefs prepare each course in front of us. Thinking we may feel rushed (the restaurant was so busy), we enjoyed a...More
