While this location is closed, look for Janice and her amazing Japanese Izakaya food at Kitchen Cru 337 NW Broadway. Although good luck finding out when as the website has yet to be updated.
An Ethiopian family restaurant, the Blue Nile offers warm hospitality combined with savory dishes that will please both the vegetarian and carnivore in you. A cozy cafe adorned with cultural memorabilia, the Blue Nile is graciously hosted by an owner who always seems to remember you, and never stops smiling. Enjoy being a part of the family while simultaneously devouring enjera bread and all its mouth-watering accompaniments: various lentil, cabbage and vegetable items, spicy beef prepared with a sweet tomato base, and traditional Ethiopian beverages. Some outside tables make for a memorable summer evening dinner. The highly affordable ethnic dining experience is available for both lunch and dinner.
This bustling Southern bistro has an impressive drink list (yes, they have mint juleps) as well as a menu full of down home treats. The seasonly changing menu reflects some of the best of what the south has to offer including a list of deep-fried appetizers and homemade deserts. Reservations highly recommended. If you're on a budget stop by for Bernie's incredible $3 happy hour in the bar featuring fried green tomatoes, mac and cheese, red beans and rice and po boys. Also, in summer they serve almost exclusively on the gorgeous back patio.
Slices are surprisingly rare to find in this town, which makes Bella Faccia even more wonderful. Their slices are giant and tasty, and their vegan pie is a must try. If it's nice, then dine in their charming patio out back.
This little Italian-style cafe does pasta, panini and salads right. Enjoy a cocktail or jelly glass of wine with your lunch or dinner while watching the East 28th & Burnside neighborhood pass you by. The bruschetta is nearly perfect but, sadly, isn't offered at lunch.
