  • 2. JEFF MILLER AT LITTLE BIRD BISTRO WELCOME hank you for considering a visit to Portland. 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!

  • 9. NOTEBOOK Feast for the Senses A new culinary festival turns the world’s eyes on Portland kitchens. BY BENJAMIN TEPLER 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 (, 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.

The Big Apple’s official paper of record recently singled out Portland’s Time-Based Art Festival (TBA) (Sept. 12-25, 2013; 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 ( 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.

BY EDEN DAWN hat fashion statement do True Blood actress Kristin Bauer, White House Chief of Protocol Capricia Penavic Marshall and Grammywinner Adele have in common? 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;, 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 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; 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.

  • 60. NIGHTLIFE Mix and Match Portland bartenders are crafting a cocktail paradise. BY ALLISON JONES 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. 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 77

  • 63. DINING Brunchtown, USA fficially, Portland boasts only two major league sports: soccer and basketball. But any resident will tell you there’s a third game in town — brunch. Faithful believers queue up for tables in waits so epic they’ve been fodder for Portlandia. But the rewards are delicious: stacks of hot waffles crowned with crisp pieces of fried chicken, biscuits blanketed with thick sausage gravy, and farm-fresh fried eggs topping everything from pizza to pork belly hash. 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. On the liquid side of things, dozens of distinctive red-hued pints vie for the title of best Bloody Mary in town. And when it comes to what’s in your mug, Portland’s lauded microroasters make starring breakfast appearances around town. Even better, most places offer bottomless cups of coffee to customers in line, to make those infamous waits go by just a bit more easily.
