Fodor's Review

Salumist Elias Cairo made a name for himself throughout the country with his artisanal charcuterie, such as smoked chorizo, pepper-coated capicola, and pork-pistachio pâté, which is sold in fine grocery stores nationally as well as at numerous Portland farmers' markets and gourmet shops. Now Cairo, alongside chef Alex Yoder, have become known for a pair of stellar, meat-centric restaurants—Olympia Provisions Northwest and Olympia Provisions Southeast—in which you can order platters of charcuterie and cheeses along with more eclectic seasonal American fare. Consider the starter of olive-oil-poached albacore with corona beans, and main dishes that include braised short ribs, roasted French garlic sausage with white beans and tarragon mustard, and roasted chicken thighs with eggplant caponata and garlic-yogurt sauce. The original Central East Side location is in a smartly designed warehouse space and features a glowing "Meat" sign which quite simply says it all. The Northwest branch is in an airy storefront space on the northern edge of the Pearl District. Both spots are popular for brunch and happy hour, and carry extensive cocktail and wine lists. They also operate OP Wurst, specializing in gourmet sausages and hot dogs, in Pine Street Market.
