About Portland, OR Restaurants
Portland has become increasingly well-known for its wealth of restaurants that offer outstanding dishes across a broad range of cuisines. The Pearl District is a popular dining destination, housing a host of restaurants in the area's refurbished warehouses. Nob Hill is another restaurant row of sorts, with 21st Avenue holding the majority of the best dining rooms. Downtown has classic favorites that have been serving the public for decades, while the Southeastern neighborhoods of Sellwood and Westmoreland boast their share of celebrated restaurants as well. Seafood, fresh produce and innovative dishes are the order of the day in most area kitchens, many of which pride themselves on using local, organic produce, free-range meats and other ingredients produced through sustainable industries. Many restaurants showcase both the cuisine and the wines of the Pacific Northwest, encouraging diners to pair just the right varietal with their meal.
