[802.3af] Restaurants in Downtown Portland


Use this link to download a map of downtown Portland:

It only takes about fifteen minutes to walk from one end of downtown to the
other (SW Clay St. to SW Burnside Ave.), so don't be put off by the number
of blocks. They're small.  Downtown Portland is an active place, and many of
the best restaurants are located in hotels. This list is certainly not
complete. I have intentionally omitted "non-local" places like Ruth's Chris,
Morton's, the Rock Bottom Brewery, et al. The links take you to a review
page which may also have a link to the restaurant's Website.

There are many more restaurants located in Northwest Portland on NW 21st.
and 23rd. Avenues, and in the Pearl District. If you want to range outside
of downtown, I'll be glad to give you suggestions. It is a 5 to 10 minute or
less cab ride from downtown to the Pearl District and NW 21st. and 23rd., or
a half-hour walk.
