Portland, Oregon's Best Restaurants
Few cities’ restaurant cultures surprass the farm-to-table dining in Portland, Oregon.
The Rose City has long been known for its edgy and independent culinary scene—innovative chefs opening casual restaurants, charming bistros and gourmet food trucks to showcase the region’s natural bounty (produce, cheese, meats, wine) from the nearby Willamette Valley and other regions throughout the fertile Pacific Northwest. And while these casual farm-to-table spots are thriving (as is the food truck culture), there are also plenty of white tablecloth restaurants more suited to a business lunch or dinner, but where you’ll still enjoy fresh artisanal and regional ingredients on your plate. Here are a few options to consider on your next trip to Portland.
