Razor clam chowder with pancetta, basil and smoked paprika? Maybe crispy rockfish with summer beans, roasted red peppers and a saffron-sweet corn fumet? These are the kinds of Mediterranean inspired dishes you will find Chef Anthony Cafiero cooking up at Portland favorite, Tabla Mediterranean Bistro. The rockfish that Chef Cafiero purchases is actually a byproduct of commercial halibut fishing, which he purchases at the very reasonable rate of, three and a half dollars a pound. At just twenty-four dollars for three courses, this is by a long shot the best dining deal in Portland.

So enjoy their recipes and next time you are in Portland or San Francisco stop by and say hello. They are both easy going and love to talk about what they do. The passion and commitment they share is evident in everything they cook and I have a feeling that you will be reading about these young chefs for years to come.
