Foodies: take heart! The above list is merely the beginning of the dining deliciousness that awaits in Oregon. Some of our other favorite restaurants in OR include:
Spork - Spork is a delightful fusion spot in Bend featuring Mexican eats, Asian plates, and craft cocktails in a wholly unique venue, making it a winner for virtually everyone in your dining party. If the weather cooperates, dine outside for a fun and quirky eating experience!
Noble Rot - Noble Rot has some of the most beautiful views of lovely PDX. Dine al fresco in this fourth-story rooftop restaurant, and bask in the sublime scenery and ambiance of the Rose City. Noble Rot is a wonderful example of Oregon's cutting-edge culinary scene; with its own garden and ecosystem, Noble Rot takes "farm-to-table" dining to a whole new, wholly wondrous level.
Soter Vineyards - Located in the winsome Willamette Valley, Soter Vineyards is a picturesque place that seems almost too beautiful to be real. Soter is committed to sustainability and biodynamics, operating within a regenerative farming system focused on biodiversity, integration of plants and animals, and soil health. The food reflects this love and care; it's some of the freshest and most vibrant you'll ever taste. As the fall foliage peaks in Oregon, we can't imagine a more beautiful place to dine!
