Dishcrawl Comes To Portland



National start-up guides PDX food lovers through four restaurants in one night

Portland, OR – July 20, 2011 – Dishcrawl, a national start-up founded on the premise that communities can be brought together through good food and good company, is expanding to Portland this August! Dishcrawl takes food lovers on a gourmet Dishcrawl to four distinctive restaurants in one night. It’s like a pub crawl—but more delicious!

Dishcrawl expands into Portland’s NE Alberta St. neighborhood with the mission to give folks a reason to get out of the house and socially engage with each other while helping local restaurants gain exposure. The first Portland Dishcrawl will be in the NE Alberta St. neighborhood on Tuesday, August 30, from 7-10pm. Reservations are $26 per person and can be purchased at

“Dishcrawl focuses on introducing food lovers not only to restaurants’ signature dishes, but also to the chefs and owners behind those dishes,” says Portland Dishcrawl Coordinator Katie Mitchell. “We believe that in doing so, we’ll help form a stronger bond within the food communities that already play a large role in Portland culture.”

Participating restaurants are kept secret until two days before the event, at which time the first location is revealed to ticket holders.
