Description and history
Little Bird was a French bistro in downtown Portland. It opened in 2010, and has been called Le Pigeon's "downtown sister". The Oregonian's Michael Russell described the restaurant as a "Swiss Army knife, stately enough for a business lunch, lively enough for an anniversary dinner, yet able to handle a drop-in at 10:45 p.m." The dining room was designed by Mark Annen, and featured robin egg blue walls, tall mirrors, and taxidermied birds.
In 2015, Gabriel Rucker replaced opening chef Erik Van Kley. Rucker's team of chefs included Marcelle Crooks, Andrew Gordon, and Su Lien Pino. As of 2015, Kristen Thoennes served as general manager and Andy Fortgang is Little Bird's wine director.
The restaurant closed on October 27, 2019.
