The team behind Laurelhurst Market brings you this BBQ joint in Sellwood, offering an array of draft cocktails. Featuring the usual assortment of smoked meats and typical Southern sides, you’ll find some of their more creative dishes on the sandwich side of things. Their best bite very well may be the buttermilk-soaked fried chicken.
The colorful, distinctly French boozer in Kerns fits about twenty or so people. Take a seat at the marble bar top and enjoy a simple but smartly prepared cocktail. You won't find an actual cocktail menu, but rather a list of spirits... take your pick, and the bartenders are sure to serve you up something expertly prepared.
This Clinton/Divison Mextaurant's menu boasts a healthy mix of Southwestern favorites as well as a drink list of michelas and micheladas, and the open kitchen lends itself to the overall ambiance. Don't skip 'em for breakfast, either, as they're serving up a slew of breakfast burritos and omelets.
This Russian eatery is brought to you by the team behind Oven & Shaker. Lots of knickknacks litter the area while lace curtains allow just enough natural light in to not feel dark. The menu has plenty of hearty fare, and of course, vodka.
A sixty-foot hotel bar in the heart of Downtown? A dozen little spots to tuck yourself into and not be seen? A digital photo booth? Jackknife Bar is rocking that, plus artisan 'tails, of course.
This Chinatown bar, helmed by Ryan Magarian, focuses on serving up smartly made cocktails, and because you've gotta eat, offers bites from the Lardo commissary (almost their entire classic sammy menu!).
With colorful murals and an outdoor patio, this food truck-turned-brick-and-mortar spot is slinging some sweet tamales in NE.
A food cart success story, this catering businesses (plus their line of namesake sauce, Nong) boasts a brick and mortar on Alder. The menu is mostly their classics, but there are still surprises in store, like the peanut sauce that compliments both a vegetarian and a pork dish.
Star bartender Jeffrey Morgenthaler helms this speakeasy. In typical fashion, the door is mostly unmarked, but you’ll know where to go once inside, as it's right down the stairs and underneath Morgenthaler’s other famous bar, Clyde Common. Within this dark haunt you’ll find the best Long Island you’ve ever had, plus creative bar bites like Hawaiian spiced peanuts.
