We are forgetting in this discussion that Portland has an annual metro population of nearly 2.2 million residents. During peak season here in the old pueblo we can maybe hit one million if we count Red Rock and Vail as part of the metro area. Of course that number dips to around 700,000 in the heat of the summer.

Yes Portland has some fine restaurants, but it is a city that remains humble about its accomplishments. Look at Pok Pok, arguably one of Portland's best restaurants, it started life as a food truck and now has a James Beard award.

What about Feast, Kingfisher, Pasco Kitchen, Abbey, HUB, 47 Scott, Cafe Poca Cosa, Downtown Kitchen, Hacienda del Sol, Dish, Cup Cafe, Maynards, Wildflower, Bluefin, Bazils, Jax, Parish, Agustine, or Delectables?
