Located in the historic Ladd Carriage House, Raven and Rose (and its appropriately named bar, the “Rookery”) makes good use of its unusual architecture. The wooden beams and farmhouse feel contrast with more conventional Portland interiors of, say, exposed brick, and the menu reflects the environment. Easily the highlight of the happy hour menu is the stuffed Yorkshire pudding ($4), a British meat pillow of beef and pastry that I wanted to indecorously eat two of at once. The charcuterie plate is a constantly rotating assortment of meats and cheeses that’s totally worth nine bucks, and the cocktails are heavily biased in favor of whiskey—which I had no problem with. I have no idea how Irish the cocktail called the Irish ($7) is, but the citrus and whiskey certainly evoked an imagined fancy Celtic land where everyone drinks at an old wooden pub. JOE STRECKERT
