I really, really want to devote a full post to each of these spots, but its been summer and work is busy and we just moved into our new house and blah blah, you understand.
Here's the drill: 5 spots, described in 5 words. (Plus a bit of info about the occasion because obvs you want more details.)
Victoria Bar (Not to be confused with Victory Bar)
The Five: Decent Southern dishes and cocktails.
Eb & Bean
The Five: Move over, Salt & Straw.
The Green Room
The Occasion: The second stop on a recent downtown pub crawl (Shift Drinks coverage coming soon).
The Five: Don't expect MWL's outstanding service.
The Five: Cheap, tasty family-style dinner.
The Five: I just don't get it.*
*Neither did Portland Monthly or Portland Mercury. Check out Pomo's Q&A with Broth Bar's owner here and The Merc's snarky review here.
