Are we surprised?! Definitely not.
We Portlanders (the East Coast ones!) have known this to be true all along. With what seems like a new restaurant or brewery opening up every day, we have been so lucky to call this town home.
Some of our favorite places to pop in for food or drink:
Dutch's for affordable homemade deliciousness!
East Ender as the hidden spot with great happy hour specials and good apps to pair.
Tomaso's for the neighborhood hole in the wall feel, but has a great draft selection and quality pub food you'd expect in a foodie town like Portland.
Baharat in East Bayside - creative cocktails and lots of options for vegetarian and meat eaters!
Ribolitta's for the fantastic food at a good price.
Bunker Brewing for a good outdoor space to enjoy the amazing beer.
