From the kouign amann, to the masterfully designed sandwich menu, to the just-released pizza bianca, I'm continually impressed by the way Stumptown founder Duane Sorenson's latest venture sets its sights on—and achieves—excellence. It feels like someone set down a big bag of money, said, "Make everything the best," and left a talented team to do its work. CHRIS ONSTAD
Roman Candle is one of the year's best new casual dining spots.
