2. St. jack 1610 NW 23rd, Portland, OR 97210

St. Jack is run by a former 23Hoyt chef and named for the man's encouraging grandfather (it's also an Americanization of "coquille St. Jacques", French for "scallop"). There is an elegantly-tiled patisserie with pastry domes and Stumptown coffee as well as a bistro side serving rustic continental fare. Snack on bones marrow gremolata and seared foie gras or, for something heavier, a whole roasted trout with lentils, arugula and brown butter vinagrette.

3. Zach's Shack 4611 SE Hawthorne Blvd, Portland, OR 97215 (Hawthorne Dist)

A friendly, nabe-y dive that specializes in cheap drinks, warm service, and super dogs (filled with cheese or topped with anything you can imagine) that are best eaten late-night.

4. Portland Penny Diner 410 SW Broadway, Portland, OR 97205 (Downtown)

A New York style do-it-all eatery and bar, the Portland Penny Diner serves breakfast, lunch, cocktails, and of course your end of the night I-think-I' m-going-to-call it-but-I'm-hungry needs.

5. Lardo 1212 SE Hawthorne, Portland, OR (Hawthorne Dist)

The Hawthorne pork paradise's Super Bowl party will make the Bud Bowl look like the Puppy Bowl, pitting SF's Speakeasy brewing against Frederick, MD's Flying Dog in a beer-off. And if you care about sports or whatever, a huge screen in their tented lot will play the game while they serve smoked-pork nachos and lamb meatballs.
