Very much at home in it's close-in Southeast location (now in new digs), this Italian-style vegan restaurant offers delectable meat and dairy-free versions of traditional Italian dishes like: Osso Busco, ravioli, gnocci, lasagna and even tiramisu. And to top it all off, they offer baked goods from that oh-do-delicious Little T bakery!
Crispy crust, hand-crafted artisan pizza topped with fresh ingredients. Considered one of the best pizzas in Portland, and it better be: the wait for a table can be a test in patience so have a snack before you go. No take-out, no delivery.
A cozy family run restaurant in a kind of out-of-the-way location serving up selections of standard Mexican fare along with more "exotic" Salvadoran dishes (amongst these, a generous selection of vegetarian dishes). Food can be ordered a la carte, or as part of a meal or a platter for 2 or more people. The papusas (deep-fried tortillas filled with cheese and beans or meat) get raves.
The Belmont Station, while not actually on Belmont street, is a great one-stop shop for imported and local (Oregon) microbrews, ciders and wines. Seriously, the selection is mind-boggling. And if that weren't enough, the Bier Café allows you to sit, relax, and sample some of the finest the region has to offer while supping on deli or panini sandwiches, soup, or salads. The selection is small but consists of classics like turkey, tuna salad, the Reuben (substitute tempeh for no extra charge!), and more. More pluses: Stumptown coffee, Grand Central bread, organic local produce and recycled containers.
