The 2010 Opinionated About Dining Top Restaurants in the U. S. Survey came out last week with Portland placing 5 of the top 15 in the New England region. Friday night I was happily snapping away at # 9 on that list Krista Kern Desjarlais' bresca, ( Catalonian for honeycomb). The small, make that tiny two person kitchen, is the stage for a two act play. I caught the first act (seating) and left by 8:30 before the second act started. The handful of tables is serviced by two wait staff. French cafe music was playing over the kitchen stereo.
