With its recent makeover (it still smells new), the Bitter End has ditched its dark 'n' divey look for a light, expansive gastropub feel. The layout has improved, and the TVs broadcasting all manner of sports are still there, but they don't dominate the space, and the kitchen is open and larger, which is reflected in the extensive menu. Beer is the focus, here—23 rotating taps (nearly all Oregon brews), and just as many by the bottle. No doubt it will still be full of green and gold on a Timbers game day, but it offers an upscale alternative to a divey stretch of Burnside. MJ SKEGG
