Blue Spoon is the neighborhood restaurant that you’ll wish was around the corner from where you lived. This all-day spot in Munjoy Hill serves a long list of dishes that always sound good, some of which are Italian, like the duck risotto and ragu, and others that aren’t, like their burger, which is one of our favorites in Portland. They also have a great brunch, where breakfast people can get things like pancakes and pork belly hash, and non-breakfast people can get cacio e pepe. If you want to come later in the day, they do a Happy Hour from 4:30-6pm most nights, which includes deals on wine and snacks, in case you ate here last night, but still want to stop by again for a drink before dinner elsewhere.
