While people seek many different things when they travel, there’s one constant: Everybody’s got to eat. In Portland, that simple fact offers three opportunities a day — at least — to discover the city, indulge in fresh ingredients grown right here, and connect with people passionate about what they do and where they live. This food scene is as accessible as Portland itself, where light rail and streetcar lines connect diverse neighborhoods. And our favorite dishes are all over the map, coming from food carts, James Beard Award-winning restaurants, farmers’ market vendors and one iconic doughnut shop (see page 27). Want to taste all that Portland — and Oregon — has to offer? Don’t miss our international food festival, Feast Portland, which returns Sept. 20-23, 2013 (see p. 13). Of course, there’s much more to Portland than fantastic food. Between meals, you can indulge in tax-free shopping at unique independent shops, vintage stores and more (pp. 17, 65), keep kids of all ages entertained (p. 73) and explore the distinct areas of town (p. 33), including the growing Central Eastside, now connected to downtown by streetcar (p. 14). And, as much as we love our city, we wholeheartedly encourage you to get out of town to explore the amazing wine country, gorge, mountain and coastline that are all within easy reach of Portland. Find inspiration starting on page 45. We hope the details you find in this guide will whet your appetite. Portland looks forward to sharing a meal with you soon!

  • 12. Portland Monthly magazine’s contributing food writer, Benjamin Tepler has spent the last two years interpreting chef shorthand, lining up citywide rounds of biscuit-tastings and blogging everything worth chewing on for the magazine’s dining blog “Eat Beat.” When he’s not lending his taste buds to pieces like “Great Plates” (p. 27) for Travel Portland, the New York native continues his search for the perfect boiled bagel. Eden Dawn (yes, that is her real name), who covers vintage shopping (p. 65), is Portland Monthly’s style editor. Between coordinating fashion shoots for the likes of Portlandia stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein and reporting the latest sartorial trends, the native Oregonian can be found teaching fashion at the Art Institute of Portland. Southeast Portland resident and awardwinning travel writer Julian Smith, who contributed to “Street Scene” (p. 33), is the author of Crossing the Heart of Africa, a book about following the 4,000-mile, eight-country route of a love-struck 19thcentury British explorer. Smith also covers science and travel for Smithsonian, Wired, Outside and the Washington Post. travelportland.com Photographer Stuart “Stu” Mullenberg knows his way around the table. The Minnesota native regularly documents restaurants, bars and foodie culture for Portland Monthly and Imbibe magazines, and we asked him to do the same for us. Find his shots of standout dishes in “Great Plates,” Feast food festival in Notebook (p. 13), and cocktails in Nightlife (p. 77).

  • 15. notebook Feast for the Senses A new culinary festival turns the world’s eyes on Portland kitchens. By benjamin Tepler Local chefs at feast’s 2012 sandwich invitational travelportland.com P h oto g r a p h b y s t u a r t m u l l e n b e r g “B lame the coffee geeks, blame the microbreweries, blame the climate, and all that local produce . . . Fact is, Portland’s food scene is where it’s at.” With that 2011 announcement, Bon Appétit magazine put the foodie world on notice that the upstart, indie-minded Stumptown had officially cemented itself as a bona fide culinary capital — and that a coming-out party was in order. Enter Feast Portland (www.feastportland.com), the city’s first-ever world-class food festival. The inaugural three-day event in September 2012 drew upon a deep roster of Portland-bred talent (national James Beard Award-winning chefs, renegade food-cart cooks, sommeliers and beer experts, just for starters) and an international cast of kitchen royalty, including chefs from Michelin-starred restaurants, food writers from The New York Times and Bon Appétit, and foodie TV personalities. Feast 2.0 is set for Sept. 20-23, 2013 — but the Portland food scene dazzles in any season. The fertile Willamette Valley fills the pantries of acclaimed chefs and stocks booths and shelves at some of the country’s most impressive farmers’ markets and gourmet specialty shops. Close proximity to the Pacific means just-caught salmon, tuna and Dungeness crab. Organic farms deliver grass-fed beef and hazelnutfinished hogs. Deep, rain-washed forests harbor fresh chanterelle and morel mushrooms. Around town, more than 50 breweries produce thirst-quenching beers, while wine (and spirit) lists at nearly every restaurant are dominated by local products. Our bounty also spills over to a legendary food-cart scene (some 700 and counting) — and it’s not unheard of to experience all of these delights on the same city block. Your table is waiting. 13

I n Portland, coffee is the new wine, baristas are akin to rock stars and only the most tricked-out espresso machines are trusted with unique house roasts. With breakout local successes like Stumptown Coffee Roasters, which now boasts satellites in Brooklyn and Seattle as well as a burgeoning line of bottled cold brews, the city seems poised to take over (or at least overcaffeinate) the nation. In the meantime, visitors will find Portland’s bean scene is as accessible as it is diverse. In fact, you don’t have to leave downtown to sample some of the best cups. Here’s a short list that’s bound to get you buzzing. — Kit Mauldin siphon brewing method at barista 16 Spella Caffè Public Domain Barista Owner Joel Domreis starts most days with a 4 a.m. roasting session, cooking up to 100 pounds of fresh green beans before switching to baking duty in his minimalist storefront. Behind the bar made of locally sourced walnut, cold brews steep for 24 hours and light- and medium-bodied single-origin varieties are filtered through 23-karat-gold-plated cones.

R estaurants and food carts aren’t the only places to experience Portland’s hyperlocal independent culinary scene — you can also savor that creativity by the scoop. Opened just two years ago, Salt & Straw (2035 N.E. Alberta St., 503.208.3867; 838 N.W. 23rd Ave., 971.271.8168; www. saltandstraw.com) has already spawned a second location (with a third in the works for summer 2013) and entranced food critics from the likes of Bon Appétit and Sunset magazine. Unexpected recipes like strawberry with balsamic vinegar and black pepper, pear with blue cheese, and Arbequina olive oil might raise eyebrows, but trust your taste buds: These flavors sing. Watch for limited-edition offerings, like the Timbers-soccer-inspired “Rose City Riot,” featuring rosewater, pistachios and saffroninfused cream. Farm-fresh ingredients are no strangers to Ruby Jewel (428 S.W. 12th Ave., 971.271.8895; 3713 N. Mississippi Ave., 503.505.9314; www.rubyjewel.net). The ice creamery got its start at the Portland Farmers Market and now boasts a pair of brick-and-mortar locations serving locally sourced scoops, sundaes and addictive ice cream sandwiches. Try the lemon cookie with honey lavender ice cream or adventurous specials like chevre with port. The downtown shop also features a candy shop and soda fountain. For a true mad scientist’s approach, try What’s the Scoop? (3540 N.Williams Ave.; 971. 271.7694; www.whatsthescooppdx. com), which utilizes liquid nitrogen to fast-freeze its handcrafted treats for unbelievable creaminess. Rotating flavors include Maple Jack (as in Jack Daniel’s whiskey) Bacon Brittle and peanut butter curry. Experimentation has rarely tasted this sweet. — Karen Martwick travelportland.com For the Ladies notebook T here’s more to nailing Portland’s signature casual-cool look than simply popping on a little plaid. After all, a true local is prepared to cycle to work, dodge raindrops and hoof it to a gallery opening in one versatile ensemble. Luckily, the West End and Nob Hill shopping districts make it easy to snap up some quintessentially Portlandic accessories. Here’s what to look for. Just remember to leave the kilts, handlebar mustaches and rollerderby socks to, er, advanced Portlanders. — Eden Dawn 17

  • 60. Arts CAnnon beach’s Haystack rock Beach Fronts Life’s a beach in the welcoming towns of Cannon Beach and Seaside. By Emily Hutto travelportland.com T 58 here’s no sea breeze in Portland, but with two popular beach towns just 90 minutes away, it’s easy to land a trip to the Pacific Ocean during a visit to the Rose City. Travel west on U.S. 26, through the lush Coast Range mountains to connect with U.S. 101. Head south a few miles to Cannon Beach, an artsy coastal village, or venture north to explore the old-school boardwalk offerings of Seaside. No matter which you choose, you’ll find stunning seascapes and welcoming vibes. CANNON BEACH This scenic town claims two coastal landmarks: Ecola State Park and Haystack Rock. Named for a native word for “whale,” Ecola State Park’s stretches of rugged, forested headlands offer outstanding hiking and quick access to cliff-framed Indian Beach. Just to the south, iconic Haystack Rock rises 235 feet above a long, sandy beach and some of the best tide pools on the coast. Seaside Promenade The lively midtown area of Cannon Beach is home to a vibrant arts scene. The dozen or so galleries include the Cannon Beach Gallery (1064 S. Hemlock St.; 503.436.0744; www.cannonbeacharts. org), with monthly rotating exhibits, and the DragonFire Studio and Gallery (123 S. Hemlock St.; 503.436.1533; www. dragonfirestudio.com), which offers seasonal workshops. For a java break, stop into Sleepy Monk Coffee Roasters (1235 S. Hemlock St.; For more information on the Oregon Coast, visit www.visittheoregoncoast.com. 503.436.2796; www.sleepymonkcoffee. com) for locally roasted, organic pours and house-made scones and muffins. (At night the café becomes an Irish restaurant.) Cap a day with a meal at Bill’s Tavern and Brewhouse (188 N. Hemlock St.; 503.436.2202; www. billstavernandbrewhouse.com), a favorite for its seafood-centric pub grub and house microbrews, like the award-winning Duck Dive Pale Ale. SEASIDE Seaside has been a destination for families since the turn of the 20th century, thanks to beloved attractions like the Promenade, a 1.5-mile, lamppost-lined walkway built in 1920. To see the strip in style, rent cruiser beach bikes from Prom Bike & Hobby Shop (622 12th Ave.; 503.738.8251; www.prombikeshop.com). Just off the Promenade, the landmark Seaside Aquarium (200 N. Promenade; 503.738.6211; www.seasideaquarium.com) is the one of oldest on the West Coast, dating to 1937. Inside, kids (and kids at heart) delight in feeding the resident seals or exploring the “touch tanks” with their dozens of colorful sea creatures. Don’t miss a whirl on the beloved Seaside Carousel (300 Broadway; 503.738.6728; www.seasidecarouselmall. com), which features 24 ornate carousel animals, all based on figures at San Francisco’s American Carousel Museum.

  • 63. arts Time After Time I t’s not just Portland’s foodie culture that’s caught the attention of The New York Times lately. The Big Apple’s official paper of record recently singled out Portland’s Time-Based Art Festival (TBA) (Sept. 12-25, 2013; www.pica.org/tba) as “the best contemporary summer festival in the country.” Modeled on Euro and Aussie blowouts in places like Edinburgh and Adelaide, TBA is orchestrated by the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art (www.pica.org) and unites artists and performers from around the world for two weeks of performances, events and festivities. Some 25,000 attendees turn out for the action, which can be found everywhere from tony concert halls to street corners. Workshops and talks keep the arts going almost nonstop, effectively obliterating barriers between artist and audience and between performance and everyday life. TBA’s 10th anniversary in 2012 featured high-profile tickets like Laurie Anderson’s acclaimed solo story, a documentary on designer R. Buckminster Fuller live-scored by the legendary indie band Yo La Tengo, and plenty of edgy offerings like pop music anti-icon Christeene, a self-described “drag terrorist.” With so much art to chew on, naturally, festivalgoers get hungry. Luckily, PICA’s Works Biergarten offers up foodie favorites like Boke Bowl and Grüner, making for one of the most artistic — and delicious — scenes in the country.

All are fans of the stunning vintage dresses that are up for grabs here in Portland. And why not? Portland boasts nearly 50 vintage shops, offering up meticulously curated — and constantly updated — collections of costume jewelry, traditionally tailored suits and, of course, racks upon racks of dresses that span the decades — a bounty that has fashion-savvy visitors stuffing their suitcases to the weight limit with our secondhand goodies. “The Portland vintage scene is thriving,” says Liz Gross, owner of Xtabay (2515 S.E. Clinton St.; 503.230.2899; www.xtabayvintage.com), one of the town’s hottest resale boutiques. “And people from all over the world seem to know about it.” (In fact, Xtabay has outfitted Bauer and Marshall for high-profile events, along with still more celebrities like Carrie Brownstein from Portlandia.) Gross, who started her fancy frock shop in 2001, credits Portland’s reasonable rents and abundance of estate sales and thrift shops for creating the buzz. So what’s the key to scoring big on your own time-travel shopping trip? Gross advises going slowly and enjoying the thrill of the hunt — and having “a hell of a lot of tenacity.” Knowing where to go helps, too.

By brian Barker the Springwater corridor along the Willamette River travelportland.com P h oto g r a p h b y b r u c e f o r s t e r B uilt along a former railway line on the east side of the Willamette River, the Springwater Corridor has helped Portlanders get moving since 1903. Today, with the engines and passenger cars long gone, it’s cyclists and joggers who flock to this 21-mile-long paved multiuse path. Pedaling south from the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry you’ll find the retro Oaks Amusement Park and its wilder neighbor, Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge (S.E. Seventh Avenue and Sellwood Boulevard; www.portlandparks.org). Once slated for industrial development, the 142-acre park became Portland’s first official urban wildlife refuge in 1988. Scores of birds, including the city’s iconic blue heron, flock here, along with more reclusive critters like coyotes and black-tailed deer. A two-mile system of trails provides easy access for excellent river views. Just east of Portland’s Sellwood neighborhood, the trail continues through Tideman Johnson Natural Area (S.E. 37th Avenue and Tenino Street), a six-acre park that sits in the floodplain of nearby Johnson Creek and is equipped with a fish ladder to accommodate native salmon. About a mile east Leach Botanical Garden (just south of S.E. Foster Road on 122nd Avenue) occupies a lush canyon cut by gurgling Johnson Creek. The garden dazzles with more than 1,500 varieties of wildflowers and exotic plants. And don’t miss the mossy cobblestone cabin and outdoor hearth. Nearby Powell Butte Park (16160 S.E. Powell Blvd.) makes a worthy destination. Along with some of the city’s best stretches of singletrack trails, you can expect dense forests, a newly opened interpretative center and inspiring vistas. Climbing to 627 feet, the volcanic butte boasts wildflowerfilled meadows, an orchard and Mount Hood views. 69

And from one end to the other, families can find an entire day’s worth of adventures. For a quick nature excursion, take the Wapato Access Greenway State Park Trail, an easy two-mile loop that tours a seasonal lake. Among mammoth bigleaf maples and Douglas firs you’re likely to spot at least half a dozen kinds of birds, including bald eagles. At the northeast end of the island, the seven-mile round-trip Warrior Rock Lighthouse Trail leads to a sandy beach with views of Oregon’s smallest lighthouse. Getting lost is just part of the fun at the Pumpkin Patch (16511 N.W. Gillihan Road; 503.621.3874; www.thepumpkinpatch.com). Open from June through the first week of November, the farm boasts two of the area’s largest corn mazes, including a “haunted” maze each fall, while a barnyard petting zoo and fields of U-pick berries make for sweet memories. No island visit is complete without a trip to Kruger’s Farm Market (17100 N.W. Sauvie Island Road; 503.621.3489; www.krugersfarm.com), which hosts a weekly summer concert series, a fall harvest party and free hayrides into the pumpkin fields. Adults have plenty of reason to cheer, too: On weekends, the Captured by Porches beer bus serves up fresh microbrews. 73

Nightlife Mix and Match Portland bartenders are crafting a cocktail paradise. by allison Jones The singapore sling at Teardrop lounge ➙ travelportland.com P h oto g r a p h b y s t u a r t m u l l e n b e r g I n the city of DIY everything, even the ice in your cocktail offers a chance for a handcrafted experience. How else to explain the fact that, along with hours of late-night shaking (and stirring), local bartenders have been known to clock in early to carve distilled ice blocks with Japanese woodworking tools, or even smoke glacial ice for just the right flavor. Preserving fresh Bing cherries, tinkering with personal bitters recipes, putting in extra hours studying history-steeped libations — every detail gets considered. The round-the-clock obsession with quality (along with fashionable new bars opening weekly, it can seem) means Portland’s cocktail enthusiasts are hard-pressed to pick their favorite drinking perch. “Portland may not be a large city,” says Adam Robinson, a bartender at industry favorite Rum Club, “but our craft cocktail scene has rivaled the big guys for years. You can go to any major city in this country and see Portland’s influence — but why leave? We’ve got it all here.” Another key trait of Portland’s cocktail scene: camaraderie. Shakers hop from bar to bar, sharing recipes and resources on both sides of the river, resulting in a community that’s as tight-knit as it is welcoming. Snag a stool at any top bar in town, and your neighbor is likely to be an insider in the cocktail club, nursing an artisan concoction made by a close friend. The best part? After a few visits, you’re an insider, too. 77

Crave more than abundance? It’s not all over-the-top here: Many local favorites dish out seasonally driven brunch plates as complex and elegant as anything on the dinner menu. International flavors are infiltrating the standard bacon-and-egg fare, and the results are truly inspirational.

The information center is located in Pioneer Courthouse Square (S.W. Sixth Ave. between Morrison and Yamhill streets), on the MAX light rail line and within easy walking distance of downtown hotels. The center shares space with TriMet, the Portland area’s regional transportation authority. So, in addition to gathering maps and information, you can buy day- and weeklong passes to ride all of Portland’s buses, MAX trains and streetcars.
