David's Opus Ten.

Open seasonally from mid June to mid September

This intimate "restaurant within a restaurant" is like nothing else in Portland. 

Dinner at David’s Opus Ten is a nightly culinary event featuring craft cocktails and hors d’oeuvres served at 6:45PM followed by a 7 course wine pairing dinner at 7:15PM.  Service is limited to just 18 guests each night.  The restaurant opens only 40 nights for the season. 

Chef David is in the Opus kitchen every night with rare exceptions himself to prepare this hyper-local “front door to table” menu that changes each week and is centered around the fresh ingredients he finds at the Farmer's Market that's just outside the restaurant's front door

Opus Ten is also available year round for special events, private dinners, and parties. Chef David's team will gladly work with you to create a unique menu for a memorable private dining event. To plan an Opus Ten private event please call 207 773 4340.
