Our Favorite Restaurants
Ask anyone in Portland and you'll get a totally different list of their favorite places to eat and drink. There are hundreds of amazing places here... these are our personal faves.
Definitely will need reservations! I recommend calling before you arrive in Portland. This is our absolute favorite It's simple, fresh, high quality Pacific Northwest meets Italy. Our go-to for celebration dinners. Top tier, expense wise. Usually about $75/pp with wine.

Our weekly neighborhood standard. It is the ideal casual French bistro. Good wine, great burger/steak frites/mussels/steak tartare. Unless you are a strict vegan, you literally cannot go wrong here.

A longtime Portland standard, some of the best true Mexican in the city. Excellent margaritas, and a great experience. Usually pretty busy, but we think the wait it worth it.

The absolute best brunch in town, hands down. Scandinavian like you've probably never had it. Almost always a wait during peak hours, but sooooo worth it.

Don't listen to what anyone tells you about Salt and Straw... THIS is the best ice cream in the city. It's kind of out of the way in a weird Safeway strip mall (but a great little neighborhood, Woodstock) but it is so worth the trip. If you must have Salt and Straw, do it like a pro: skip the line and just buy a pint inside.

Our friend Maya Lovelace (of MAE, pop-up southern feast fame) just opened this new spot in Northeast. Her fried chicken and fixings are TO DIE FOR. Loosen your belt a notch and enjoy.

The original! You'll find Stumptown coffee in the kitchen of the Hawthorne Hideout... if you love it as much as we do, head over to one of their cafes for a cappuccino. As Portland as it gets.

Pro tip: Sit at the bar on a Friday or Saturday and order one of their superb cocktails from Camille, the genius behind the bar. Big Thief is a perfect winter warm up, and Kiki's favorite cocktail in town. The food is pretty good but expensive.

One of the best sushi restaurants in the country. Only super fresh sashimi and nigiri, don't expect California rolls here! A true Japanese style sushi house, from some very talented white boys. Recently made Bon Appetit's best new restaurants list. An absolute treat.

I almost don't want to tell you about Luce, lest it become too busy for me to pop in anytime. It is nearly a perfect restaurant. Open for lunch and dinner, perfect handmade pastas, simple vegetables done so well. The octopus and the cappelletti en brodo are the sleeper hits. Great inexpensive wine list. All Italian.

Adventures in (and around) PDX
Things to do and see!
This is Izzy's best friend's outdoor gear shop and has been a Portland favorite for over 20 years! They have everything you need for outdoor adventures- camping, hiking climbing, skiing, kayaking, SUPing... Start in the bargain basement for some thrifting fun, but explore the entire shop and find some gems. If you're looking for a fun adventure they have guided tours and an outdoor school or ask any of their great staff for a recommendation. You'll most likely get invited to whatever is happening, from a chill round of disc golf to trying whitewater rafting for the first time! They also have a Paddle Sports shop right down the street, as well as a kayak center in Scappoose (about 20 minutes north-ish) and an outpost in Sandy, on the way to Mt. Hood. Portland does everything local, and this is our own personal REI (with more knowledgable salespeople!).

The classic Portland hike. Did you know that Portland has a 5000 acre forest right inside city limits? It can get super busy on weekends and nice days, but it's right there... and so lovely. Tons of different trails, mostly moderate intensity.
