Beast is a tiny, 24-seat spot that feels more like a high-end dinner party than an actual restaurant. They serve a six-course, prix-fixe menu twice nightly, four days a week that changes every two weeks based on what’s available and in season. Don’t feel like you have to memorize that SAT question of a sentence, just plan to come and eat some incredible food. The variety of dishes and the experience of eating at large communal tables with strangers make this North Portland restaurant an incredibly unique experience.
