There are few things in life that make me happier than a great charcuterie board. Olympic Provisions in Portland is at the forefront of the city’s carnivorous cuisine, curing all of their own salami, sausage and ham which supply both of their own bricks-and-mortar restaurants as well as other markets in the city. Owner Elias Cairo calls it “American Charcuterie” and the focus is of course on local ingredients.
Pictured above is the Spanish Board, boasting two Spanish style salami, jamon de York, prosciutto, fresh chorizo and queso Idiazabal. Toasted nuts and pickled peppers accompany. Beautiful.
There is a great wine list as well as a full dinner, lunch and brunch menus, and the restaurant also boasts a deli counter for take-away customers.
