Great Italian by one of Portland's buzziest chefs (Joshua McFadden). A PDX essential. Reservations available via Resy. If you walk-in, prepare to wait about an hour- we like to wait with a cocktail at the Whiskey Soda Lounge just down the street.

Modern Israeli/Mediterranean-inspired. Bright and airy design, excellent cocktails, and the freshest veggie-forward dishes. Make a reservation on Resy or walk-in and prepare to wait about an hour. Luckily, there are lots of great bars on Division if you want to grab a drink while you wait.

Maybe our favorite restaurant in Portland! Incredible pizzas with farm-fresh ingredients, delicious veggie sides, and homemade ice cream. No reservations, but put your name in and grab a drink at Interurban next door while you wait- if the weather is nice, they have a great back patio with a fire pit.

One of our favorite food carts that specializes in freshly-made pasta. Get the burrata to start if it's on the menu, it's homemade and incredibly delicious.

An under the radar favorite, this wine bar / restaurant has an extensive wine list and fantastic food. With a $40 5-course prix fixe, it's the best deal in town for a meal that feels really special. Easy to make a reservation, even last-minute.

Nong's started as a food cart and is a Portland institution. The menu is short and the star of the show is "Nong's Khao Man Gai" ie chicken and rice. It's somehow simple and extremely flavorful at the same time.

There's a lot of great ramen in Portland (rain = prime ramen weather) and this is one of our favorites. The only other location in the world is in Tokyo. Don't be intimidated by the long line, it moves relatively quickly.

A massive independent bookstore where you can find new, used, and rare books. The West Burnside location is the flagship, but if you're looking for something more low-key, there's an East Side outpost on Hawthorne as well.

Neighborhoods
Portland is divided into four quadrants, NE (where you're staying,) SE, NW, and SW. The city is divided north/south by Burnside Street, and east/west by the Willamette (rhymes with "damnit") River. Quick rundown of NE, below: NE / SE - we're biased, but we love the East side as it feels more like "real" Portland. Here, you'll find a mix of incredible restaurants and bars, lush parks, and only-in-Portland quirk. Streets with a lot of activity / things to do (Mississippi Ave, Alberta Street, Division, Hawthorne) are just minutes away from residential, tree-lined streets.

Northwest Portland includes The Pearl and Slabtown neighborhoods. Good streets to walk down include NW 21st Ave and NW 13th Ave. Northwest Portland skews a bit more upscale (relative to the rest of the city, it's still the PNW and pretty chill). While our guidebook generally focuses on the East Side, our favorite NW restaurants include Mediterranean Exploration Company (Mediterranean), Oven & Shaker (pizza), and Ataula (Spanish).

Southwest Portland is referred to as "downtown." We don't spend a ton of time here, although there are some good restaurants to be found. If you're visiting Portland, we would recommend sticking to the East side and Northwest.
