1. Poseidon Seafood Bar and Grill 503 W. Burnside, Portland, OR 97209

Boldly deciding to open a straight-ahead seafood spot in what was formerly a no bueno strip joint, Poseidon's scrubbed away the skankiness, un-blacked the windows, and discovered snazzy hardwood floors to provide a fine atmosphere in which to take down a robust menu of surf (you-pick lobsters from live tanks; sweet vermouth-braised halibut), and serious turf like a 4hr slow-cooked prime rib, even though most of Optimus’ interior was made of cheap plastic and tiny little screws.
