Note that this is, of course, my 2011 April Fools post.
The Oregonian has started a new quarterly feature today, which will list the the top three restaurants in Portland. Their decision is based on “how many readers click on various stories on their website, which will truly reflect the popularity of those restaurants”. In other words, if they write an article on Genoa, and lots of people go to Oregon Live and read it, Genoa quickly becomes one of the “top three”. The whole idea sounds stupid to me, and further reflects the decline and fall of print media across the nation.
The best restaurant choices this quarter? Brace yourself:
- Tad’s Chicken and Dumplings in Troutdale
- Hot Lips Pizza
- McMenamins – (only the Edgefield location)
