Housed in what was once a men’s department store in downtown Portland, Leeward is a pasta-centric restaurant where, like a good suit, everything is tailor-made. Almost the entire menu is prepared and baked in-house, whether that’s the focaccia and crackers, fresh pappardelle that’s filled with slowly braised beef cheeks, or the sorbetto and gelato for dessert. The dining room is spacious and warm, making it the perfect place for a special occasion.
