Heidi Yorkshire's critical take on Ten 01
Hollywood had "Ishtar." The music world has Britney Spears. Portland dining has Ten 01 -- a case of grand ambition gone terribly wrong.... Dishes at this splashy new restaurant are conceived as if they were the last on Earth and every flavor known to man and beast must be sampled before the hour of annihilation. What else could explain the kitchen's bizarre concoctions?
An astonishingly vitriolic review for the O, and good reading; kind of like a car wreck you can't help but look at.
