10 Best Restaurants near Providence Park, Home of the Portland Timbers

Providence Park (formally Jeld-Wen Stadium) is located in downtown Portland, Oregon and home to the Timber's Soccer team as well as several other teams. Chances are high that if you are headed to a sporting event here you will want to grab something to eat in the area before or afterwards and that is why we have compiled a list of the 10 best restaurants near Providence Park. all of which are within walking distance if you are up to it.

The stadium happens to be near some of the best restaurants in Portland including the one many people believe to be one of Portland's very best, Higgins Restaurant. Not only is it near one of the top restaurants, but one of the city's top food carts happens to be right there too, Nong's Khao Man Gai. When putting together this list it became quite apparent that Providence Park is in somewhat of a food mecca, which is not too surprising considering how great all of the food is in Portland. Also near by is one of the top Italian eateries in town, Grassa and even closer is one of the best tapas restaurants Tasty N Alder. For those that get done with a game extremely late head to Little Bird Bistro who's delightful French cuisine is served until midnight. 

We hope that you enjoy not just the game, but a wonderful meal too.
