This question was suggested by a reader, and added at the last-minute. I think it was a good idea, and was interested to see which restaurants placed on top of the pack. Here are the results.
Out of 490 votes cast:
- Metrovino -20% of the vote. 1139 Northwest 11th Ave., Portland, OR 97209 (503) 517-7778
- Nostrana – 1401 Southeast Morrison St., Portland, Oregon 97214 (503) 234-2427 Map
- Kir – 22 Northeast 7th Ave., Portland, OR 97214 (503) 232-3063
Some people might argue that Kir is primarily a wine bar, so shouldn’t be on this list. For them, I will list the next highest, which is
Honorable Mentions: a large group of other restaurants were in a dead heat, separated from each other by two points, so this is a large list: Le Pigeon, Tabla, Paley’s Place, Higgins, Vino Paradiso and Noble Rot.
