On The Waterfront: Inner Southeast Portland's Industrial Tasteland

Despite the influx of hip new restaurant and business tenants in the past few years, the Willamette waterfront-hugging inner Southeast industrial district has retained its pleasantly gritty edges, and while I wouldn't run up and down the railroad tracks in the wee hours of the morning waving my wallet around, most hours of the day it's a charismatic place to hang out with friends and take advantage of the diverse culinary offerings. You'll find everything from micro-roasted craft coffee and expertly-mixed gimlets to Korean fried chicken to quite possibly the best pancakes ever, with some bottle-conditioned beers, bacon jalapeño mac 'n cheese, and live bands in between.
