Fodor's Expert Review Veritable Quandary

$$$ Downtown American

Editor's Note: This property is currently undergoing renovations.

As trendy eateries have come and gone in downtown Portland over the years, this long-standing local favorite has continued to excel as both a charming weekend brunch option and a lively, see-and-be-seen dinner spot. The beautiful outdoor patio overlooking the Hawthorne Bridge is an oasis of roses, fuchsias, and hanging begonia baskets. The menu emphasizes fresh, flavorful produce and seafood, and the 200-plus wine list is one of the best in town. The convivial bar, with its deep wooden booths, is a laid-back spot for drinks and lighter fare, including outstanding beef and veggie burgers.
