Sometimes when people are planning a trip to Portland, they email me and ask for restaurant recommendations, and because there’s nothing I love more than a distraction (um, not kidding), I generally stop everything and start writing them a long rambling reply. But this is the first time I’ve ever been paid to do it. Thanks, Serious Eats!
Here is the resulting piece on Serious Eats, “Where to Eat and Drink in Portland: A Letter.” It covers all your current eating needs, be they “best new brunch involving a rice waffle topped with black sesame ice cream” or “best dive bar fried chicken with bottomless ranch dressing” and most everything in between. If you’ve still got questions, please do email me, I’m in the middle of work and could really use a distraction. (Again, not kidding.)
