Finn & Porter

Readers' Pick

We wouldn’t be able to handle the pressure of fly-fishing in the Clark Fork right below Finn & Porter’s huge-and usually packed-deck. We’d surely snag our fly in something or fail to reel in the rainbow we hooked. But you can’t blame people for flocking to Finn & Porter’s outdoor seating for dinner and drinks. On warm summer nights, when sunlight slowly slides off Mount Sentinel and it’s light until 10, and you’re surrounded by good friends and good food, there may be no better place to be in town. Unless, that is, you’re the fisherman down below who finally happens to pull one in. Finn & Porter: Doubletree Hotel; 100 Madison St; 542-4660;
