Anthony's Restaurant, Bend Oregon --

I went to Anthony's Homeport Restaurant in the Old Mill District for lunch today with 5 co-workers. It wasn't a celebration of any sorts, just an excuse to meet and eat with nice people.

I've always liked Anthony's, from day one their menu has been inventive and reasonably priced. Yes, it is a bit spendy, but you certainly get what you pay for.

I ordered the Chop Chop Seafood Salad, and it was perfect. Big portions of fresh crab, two large prawns, avocado, egg, tomatoes, baby shrimp, and other goodies on a bed of crisp romaine with a light, creamy dressing. Every bite had good stuff on the end of the fork. My friends ordered the Hawaiian Cobb with mango, bacon and prawns, the Blackened Rockfish Tacos with fruit salsa, the bread bowl with homemade clam chowder and a salad, and the Stuffed Avocado with baby shrimp and a chunk of lettuce. All was throughouly enjoyed, and everyone walked out happy and pleased with their meal.

I love the atmosphere at Anthony's -- tall ceilings, custom lighting, and an open floorplan that encourages a festive feel.

Lunch for me was $12.95, with the average lunch bill totalling about $10 dollars. C'est bien, Anthony's!
