Not a top vote getter, but always in interesting question: “What restaurant did you “breakup” with in 2013?” We all have reasons we stop going to a restaurant – price increases, lousy service, the food goes downhill… I didn’t ask the specific reason, but some restaurants stood out to survey participants:

In 2012 the votes were: Meriwether’s Restaurant, Bluehour Restaurant, Laurelhurst Market, Genoa and Navarre.

For 2013, 448 votes:

  1. Pok Pok. I’ve been hearing rumblings from friends about dissatisfaction of late, but I’m surprised it made it to the top of this list.
  2. Nicholas – the popular Lebanese/Middle Eastern restaurants.
  3. Higgins.
  4. Tabla – I’ve heard a few comments about this too, though my last visit was just fine.

Your thoughts are welcome

    I have frequented Tabla for 10+ years and have never had a bad meal. I attended a wine dinner this past Winter and experienced the best wine/food event of 2013. This is definitely a Portland standby that keeps delivering. Also, their Prix Fixe menu is one of the best deals in town.
