Portland Zagat Guide Giveaway

Portland's first Zagat Guide!

This summer and fall I was lucky enough to get to work on Portland’s first very own Zagat Guide. A few weeks ago I came home to a box of them hot off the presses on my front porch. Have you seen it yet? What do you think? I’m sharing most of my copies with friends and family but I’m also giving one away here to a lucky commenter. I’ve written down a number as usual and that numbered commenter will get a copy of the guide. And just so you know this is how you pronounce Zagat. I’ve botched the pronunciation for years.

What I’d like to know is this — what are some of your favorite brunch spots in Portland? I’ve been going to brunch more these days and it’s always nice to know of new spots. Some brunches that I’ve really been digging lately — Kenton Club (pop-up brunch every Saturday and Sunday), EaT Oyster Bar and Interurban. I live in North Portland and tend to stay up in the hinterland for brunch but suggestions throughout Portland are welcome.

Check out this recent Oregonian interview with Nina Zagat.

    I have to admit that I’m not much of a “go out and eat brunch” type of person. Be that as it may, I have had brunch at a couple of spots that were really good. Amazingly, Aquariva (which is rarely mentioned in any food circle) has a very affordable brunch that’s not busy, and they employ not only a bloody mary bar, but also a mimosa bar. I would suggest it just for those 2 things. I’ve just found out that Tabor Tavern, which is in my own neighborhood, is doing a brunch on the weekends, and since they have rather tasty food as it is, I’ll have to shuffle over there one of these mornings. If you’re ever interested in meeting up there, Liz, just let me know — it’s been a while since I’ve seen you. ^_^

    Tasty n Sons is my go-to (along with everyone else, I realize). I had brunch at Ned Ludd last weekend and it was delicious, albeit the service was a little….frenzied? Totally agree on Interurban, too. Pretty great brunch-in-a-bar.

    Ah, there are so many to choose from, but I do love Pambiche’s weekend brunch. You get a basket of delicious free pastries and a world of delightful, unusual choices for breakfast. My favorite is the picadillo cua-cua — it’s bursting with flavor AND it comes with grilled plantains, too.

    Not in Portland and I don’t give a shit. It’s about a two hour drive which equals the wait in town for much lesser fare. You know it Liz and I’m not saying the name. Hand’s down best brunch, unless you’ve eaten foul oysters the night before… Eat, relax, enjoy then go look at some water.
