The fourth installment with my search for great fries in Portland takes me to Cassidy’s Restaurant. (Previous french fry posts featured The Observatory, Swift and Hawthorne Hop House). I’ve only been here a handful of times but each time has been a good experience. It’s conveniently located next to the Crystal Ballroom so eating there before a concert is convenient plus you can see how long the line is getting if you sit by the windows. The place also accommodates large groups fairly quickly even on a busy Friday night when every other place in town can’t seat a party of 8.
Their delicious hand-cut fries are topped with grated smoked pecorino cheese and sprinkled with rosemary salt ($7). Oh my gosh they are so good. Even if you are not hungry you will eat a few of these if you like french fries. I turned down sharing these fries with a friend until I smelled them and then proceeded to eat half of them anyways.
