Fantastic Neighborhood Restaurant, Now with Happy Hour!
I have frequented 3DD since my husband and I moved to Portland in 2003. It just keeps getting better! I'm a creature of habit, so I typically enjoy their wonderful, spicy seafood fra diavlo (outrageous portions). I recently branched out and tried the pork tenderloin and couldn't believe that I wasn't ordering that for the past five years. I am never disappointed with what I get, and it's often more food than I can ever finish.

3DD recently started hosting happy hour all night Sunday and Tuesday through Thursday, and we have been stopping by more frequently since that started. They have fantastic menu items that remind me of food back home on the East Coast. So far, I have enjoyed Kathy's beautiful Stromboli, meatballs under a thick layer of fresh motzarella, delicious fingerling potatoes, and my personal favorite, a zuppa di mare that calls to me on the nights I don't go in. The creamy mac and cheese is also phenominal. They also have a cocktail menu for happy hour that does not disappoint. There is typically a specialty cocktail each night. All of their cocktails are made with super fresh ingredients (I have often been there while the bar staff juices fruit to keep up with the evening's demand). Nothing beats fresh ingredients in a cocktail. Nothing. The pours are generous and the bar staff is hands-down Portland's finest.
This restaurant is a neighborhood gem and is a class act all the way. It is our go-to restaurant to celebrate special occasions as well as the fact that, well, it's Wednesday. The atmosphere is dimly-lit, with lots of candles, quiet music, and a wait staff that truly helps you have a fantastic evening, whether you're in for a multi-course dinner or a quick bite during happy hour.
