Five Portland Restaurants Covered by Oprah Magazine
I wondered why readers from Oprah’s domain was on the site over the summer, and now I know. A reader alerted me they were doing a roundup of restaurants for their November issue.
Since buying Oprah Magazine was a direct assault on my masculinity, I hoped to find the article online, but it isn’t there yet. Instead, I threw myself on the grenade by going to the bookstore and buying a copy – in a brown paper bag of course. You didn’t really think I’d get on MAX with a copy of it in a clear bag did you? I was hoping to get something manly to put over it, like Guns and Ammo, but they didn’t have anything like that. The whole experience reminded me of buying my first Playboy sooo many years ago. Anyway, on to the article.
Interestingly enough, Seattle was passed over. Five Portland restaurants were mentioned: Roux as “The Cool Place”, Paley’s as the “Foodie’s Choice”, Wildwood for “Local Flavor”, Por Que No as “Best Bargain”, and Park Kitchen for “Most Creative Chef”.
I’m not going to editorialize here; I’ll let you all do that. In the meantime I’m learning the 20-Minute Rule for Better Sex, How to Complain at a Restaurant, and 7 Ways to Get a Grip on Mindless Munching. Fortunately, I have a nice bag of Trader Joe’s cashews to eat while I’m reading.
