Portland, Oregon | Alberta Street
Natural Selection nails the vegetable-as-entree concept, with veggies getting the kind of attention typically lavished on a fine cut of meat. Down the street, Lolo specializes in Spanish tapas like beef empanadas and pork skewers.
This city takes coffee seriously, so it's no surprise that the skilled baristas at Random Order Coffeehouse & Bakery make perfect after-dinner toddies and coffee-based cocktails. But traditional drink slingers are keeping up: Cruzroom's bartenders mix house-made liquors like fig-infused scotch and chili-apple vodka.
Recover from a late night with an early-morning stop at Pine State Biscuits, where the dense, hand-formed biscuits are served warm with everything from gravy to fried green tomatoes to fried eggs to flank steak. Your hangover will thank you.
