1. The Zeus Cafe at Crystal Hotel 303 SW 14th, Portland, OR 97205

The 51 music-themed rooms and saline soaking pool of the new Crystal Hotel might continue the Bros McMenamin tradition of whimsifying Portland's derelict historical architecture, but the attached Zeus Cafe ends a tradition of solidly mediocre pub grub by offering upmarket food/ 'tails in uncharacteristically swank chandeliered digs with an open kitchen sporting a wood-fired oven, plus walls of street-facing windows with stained glass repping the "score" to The Grateful Dead's "Dark Star".
