I recently completed a very simple but elegant website I did for Dorio Cafe & Taverna in NW Portland. First off, if you havn’t been to Dorio I highly recommend you pay a visit. The authentic Greek food is amazing and if you are a fan of Gyros, Calamari and Hummus, this place is a must. Further, the location on NW 23rd is right in the heart of everything NW Portland and they have a great atmosphere with a full bar. I look forward to trying them out during the warmer summer months as it looks like the place to be.
Back to the website. They wanted to feature some images of the food but not overdo it. Thus, we implemented a nice Jquery Carousel slider on the home page that rotates images of the food. The menu page is very simple and clean and offers the various menus for lunch and dinner with an option to view them in a jpeg format without having to download a PDF. The raves page has a link to a review from OregonLive and their Urban Spoon page.
Overall the clients are very happy with the website. It gets the job done, has a nice elegant feel and does not over-do it like so many restaurants have the habit of doing. Visit their website for location, menu info and more at http://www.dorionw.com
