Portland chef honored by Saveur editor

Erik Desjarlais's restaurant, Evangeline, was just named one of America's top ten French restaurants by Saveur magazine's editor-in-chief, James Oseland, in an article in USA Today.

He and his wife, Krista Desjarlais of Bresca, will soon be starting 12 Seats, which may allow Erik even more room to experiment with his talents.

We'll just hope Erik will accept our congratulations and not be too upset with us for mentioning this.

(H/T Type A Diversions.)

UPDATE: Erik's not upset. He wrote to thank us, and pointed out that they aren't really "opening" 12 Seats, since it's not actually a new restaurant, so much as creating or starting what I guess I'll call a monthly event called 12 Seats at the restaurant called Bresca. I've made the change above.
