Portland

Apizza Scholls

www.apizzascholls.com

4741 Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard
Portland, OR 97215
(503) 233-1286


Anthony Bourdain is a patron of this pizza institution. The owner makes his dough with such precision that only a limited quantity is made per day, so it’s best to make a reservation way in advance.
 

Beast

www.beastpdx.com

5425 Northeast 30th Avenue
Portland, OR 97211
(503) 841-6968


This restaurant feels more like a dinner party with new friends, with two nightly pre-fixe dinners served at communal tables. The menu changes daily based on what the chefs find at the market that morning.
 

Clarklewis

1001 Southeast Water Avenue
Portland, OR 97214
(503) 235-2294


Inspired by the local cuisine and ingredients in the Northwest, Clarklewis is one of the best farm-to-table restaurants in the city. Come for lunch when the industrial space, a former loading dock, is flooded with light.
 

Pine State Biscuits

3640 Southeast Belmont Street
Portland, OR 97214
(503) 236-3346


Even the most refined palettes love the fried chicken biscuit sandwiches here. Come hungry for a weekend brunch.
 

Salt And Straw

2035 Northeast Alberta Street
Portland, OR 97211
(503) 208-3867


Some of the most delicious and original ice cream we’ve ever had — go for the blue cheese with pear or honey balsamic with fresh strawberries. Try a scoop in one of their homemade waffle cones.
 

Little Bird

www.littlebirdbistro.com

219 Southwest 6th Avenue
Portland, OR 97204
(503) 688-5952


Le Pigeon’s more casual sister restaurant offers inventive bistro-style food, like citrus salmon carpaccio and charcuterie with sausage and quail egg.
 

Sugar Cube

4262 Southeast Belmont Street
Portland, OR 97215
(503) 890-2825


Serious street eats. This food truck dishes out indulgent and inventive desserts, like a cupcake that combines potato chips, chocolate and caramel.
 

Heart

2211 East Burnside Street
Portland, OR 97214
(503) 206-6602


We love small coffee brewers — known locally as microroasters — like Heart. The coffee is so smooth and flavorful that it barely needs milk.
