Tony's Tavern remains an institution among those with barstool prints on their butts & 60 years of wisdom to bestow. Take a seat.
Order a Pabst and slide into one of the booths at the laid-back Matador, the hip alternative to the blue collar bars on the Burnside strip.
Eat Pizza's large, open windows and uniquely triangular dining room are as reminiscent of New York as their traditional style pizza. And keeping with tradition this pizzeria also offer salads, wings and Pizza Alla Casalinga. Breaking from tradition, Eat Pizza offers the uncommon "mini" pizza in lieu of pizza by the slice.
Kinara's menu boasts the basics like Pad Thai, Pra Ram and Thai Fried Rice, but pushes the envelope with roasted duck and cherry tomatoes in a red curry or the slices of beef sauteed with green onions, crimini mushrooms and fresh ginger.
Heavy on local ingredients with a south of the border flair (roasted asparagus with cilantro pesto base anyone?), Hot Lips has long cornered the sustainable and environmentally responsible market in the Portland pizza scene. Stop in for the slice of the day and a glass of their locally sourced and produced soda or get it delivered it one of their electric cars.
With Belgian beers on draught and an expansive wine list, Caffe Nizza has a weekday happy hour from four to seven. And embracing their convenient location situated near Jeld-Wen, this little bit of Europe in Goose Hollow hosts Timbers pre-game parties before every home game.
Offering all day happy hour rather defeats the purpose of having a specialized time when drinks are cheaper. That is, until you realize that the "happy" in Bulldog Tavern's all day happy hour actually pertains to the always amiable staff.
Equal parts bistro and sports bar, PUB leans heavy on Northwest favorites including a Snake River Farms Kobe Beef Burger and Halibut Fish and Chips.
