Wining And Dining In Portland

Locally-grown foods and an influx in chefs have brought a dining boom to Portland, Oregon, in recent years, making it one of the nation's best cities for eating.

"At first it was a sort of underground stop for food and wine lovers who had heard word of small, fascinating restaurants run by young, talented chefs serving a bounty of local produce. It's underground no more. Portland has emerged from its chrysalis as a full-fledged dining destination."

"This is a golden age of dining and drinking in a city that 15 years ago was about as cutting edge as a tomato in January. Every little neighborhood in this city of funky neighborhoods now seems to be exploding with restaurants, food shops and markets, all benefiting from a critical mass of passion, skill and experience, and all constructed according to the gospel of locally grown ingredients."

"In close proximity is a cadre of farmers committed to growing environmentally responsible produce with maximum flavor, delivered to restaurants and to the gorgeous farmers' markets that dot the city."
