Tina's Restaurant Review: Less than an hour from downtown Portland, Tina’s pairs simple yet elegant cooking with regional wines in a romantic setting divided by a crackling fireplace. The seasonal menu always features primarily organic local bounty: roasted duck breast with walnut-cornbread and a rich chili sauce, or a grilled hanger steak with corona beans and shallot butter. We also recommend sweet surprises such as a nectarine-blueberry cobbler with a buttery almond crust. For lunch, try the lamb stew with lentils or the airy goat cheese soufflé. The wine list draws heavily from the Yamhill Valley, and if you linger over coffee, you're likely to see some growers or winemakers make a late night appearance to show off their latest reserve bottlings. Tina's is the kind of place where your questions and interest will be welcomed by the vintners, and who knows, they may even pour you a taste.
