THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Lucere Restaurant Review: Lucere is the dining room at the RiverPlace Hotel, and floor-to-ceiling windows reveal beautiful views of the harbor and marina on the Willamette River. It offers a blissful Northwest view, and the food here reflects the region. Chef Matthew Young sticks to American basics, then accents them with regional goodies. Steaks and pork loin are tenderly grilled and served with inventive sauces rendered from local ingredients. The risotto will certainly contain wild Oregon mushrooms and the crab cakes will be stuffed with Dungeness, of course. The menu caters to travelers, business folk and locals who venture out for a special night, so the dishes are familiar fare that push the envelope into culinary artistry. The wine list contains several Northwest selections that complement the entire establishment. The bar, with a lovely patio, is a marvelous place to land after a walk along the river.
