Drew & Jackie Move Back to This Side of the Pond!

By Tracey Henkels, August 2, 2019

Congratulations to Drew and Jackie!

I think a lot of us can agree that a big part of what we love about Portland is the abundance of high-quality food and amazing restaurants, and I am no exception. As much as I enjoy cooking, I also love dining out and even more than that, I LOVE introducing my favorite people to my favorite restaurants! And for this reason, I am thrilled to have been referred to Jackie and Drew, Portland’s newest foodies!

Originally from the East Coast, Drew and Jackie are relocating to Portland from Europe where they have been living and working for almost a decade. All in all, they were decisive clients and we quickly got them into contract on a well crafted, newer home in NE Portland. On the day of their home inspection, we decided to debrief over lunch at Tamale Boy on Dekum. The meal was amazing (!) and inspired us to start talking about our favorite restaurants and I quickly realized they are definitely moving to the right place!

My favorite restaurants to introduce people to are: Xico, Tusk, Arrosto, Firehouse, Shalom Y’All and Jacqueline. Looking forward to dining out with Jackie and Drew!
