I didn't need to read Eric Asimov's New York Times story on food and drink in Portland, Oregon, to know that Portland is fast becoming one of America's best food towns.
Eric's list of places was by no means definitive (nor was it supposed to be) but by aggregating the spots he mentioned with others that have appeared on Serious Eats and in other places (another NYT piece by Chrstine Muhlke) the last few years we can put together a pretty complete Serious Eats Food Lover's Guide to Portland.
Those familiar with the Portland food scene should by all means add their favorite places to the list. Remember, this is Serious Eats. We want to know where Portland's best bites are, from foie gras to frankfurters, from pizza to pigeon, from burgers to berries. A great local online source for food information and entertainment is Portland Food and Drink. The site has a great tag line: "Throwing Ourselves on the Grenade of Bad Food to Save You."
