THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED June Restaurant Review: Larger than the exterior implies, June is a romantic restaurant with intimate tables, low light, candles, and lots of soft wood. Nine seats at the bar provide a pleasant area to wait and explore the brief but inspired cocktail list that usually features several concoctions made with apéritifs. There’s also a thoughtful selection of wines from French and regional Northwest producers, along with local and European beers. The daily changing menu finds deep roots in Oregon with experimental twists. A collard green-wrapped sturgeon filet is paired with a thick chamomile curd. Smoky beets join cabbage slaw and chicharones (crispy pork rinds). Lamb and nettle ravioli float in a clear wheat broth. A confit of albacore is served with "fermented Brussels sprouts." Not every combination works --- chicken foot sausage or potato chips with truffle ice cream and fish roe just don't entice the palate. But there's plenty here for the adventurous eater. For dessert, indulge in one of the inventive ice creams such as hazelnut nougat, or the tres leches cake served with seasonal fruit. Patience is sometimes required since service can be inconsistent.
