This wine bar has quickly become a local favorite, and if you’re in the Hawthorne District alternately debating buying a vintage seafoam-green couch and wondering how you would ever ship it home, be sure to stop in for some small plates and a glass or two of wine. You’ll find a lot of Asian ingredients throughout the menu, like Szechuan peppercorn in the fried chicken batter, sansho garnishing oysters, and XO sauce on the turnips, and there’s a big focus on natural wine here. They manage to keep the wine list from being too serious though, with $3 “bumps,” or shots, of wine, and headings like “Sierra Foothills Natural Wine Because Sometimes California Doesn’t Suck.”

Eem review image

Eem is one of Portland’s coolest restaurants and is worth the inevitable wait for a menu full of interesting hybrid dishes and “vacation drinks.”

Langbaan review image

Langbaan in Kerns uses local ingredients in traditional Thai dishes and looks kind of like an adult (and indoor) treehouse.

Sit at the sushi bar at Nimblefish, a high-end sushi spot in the Hawthorne District.

Paley’s Place

Paley’s Place in Northwest has been doing obsessing about local produce for over two decades - come for a more casual dinner or a low-key celebration.
