The Blue Goose offers another take on Southern food by offering New Mexican and Tex Mex cuisine. This means margaritas and tacos, sure, but you’ll also find smoky brisket and Hatch enchiladas too.
Stella Taco has quietly given the hipster neighborhood a legit Tex Mex joint, thanks to super garlicky salsa and posole and an assortment of quality tacos, plus there's a giant margarita machine!
Think orzo, lentils, eggplant and hummus. The plates are smaller so get a few and share, which is easy to do once you start in on the cocktail list that rarely disappoints.
This new fried chicken joint serves some of the best quick meals in Portland, all for a fairly reasonable price.
Ex Novo is the first not-for-profit brewery and splits it's earnings between different charities.
Pizza Maria is damn good despite a very limited menu of marinara pies, salads, and five appetizer options. It’s easy enough to eat a whole pizza so we recommend getting a couple and sharing a salad or app.
Bottle + Kitchen is serving your typical “New American” fare. The prices are decent (especially for a hotel restaurant) if the food is somewhat uninspired.
This sammie shop has a menu that's divided into meaty sandwiches, vegetarian sandwiches, and burgers. All come with a dollop of potato salad, and it’s definitely worth spending an extra buck to get their hand cut fries.
Pono Farm Soul Kitchen books itself as Japanese soul food, although there’s certainly some French influence. The menu is divided into your choice of protein, but there are plenty of vegetarian or seafood options, including an entire sushi menu too.
With three food carts under their belts, owners Heather and Joe opened their first brick-and-mortar. Their paleo-centric offerings are not only proving delicious to casual diners, the open, kid friendly space has made the restaurant a haven for families in the neighborhood.
This “finer diner” serves all the classics you've come to expect from a less-than-finer-diner. It’s one of the only places you can go when you're Downtown and really feel like you’re transported somewhere else entirely.
