From Our Editors

Qualit? de vie. That's what Chez Machin's owner Diane found while living in France, and on many days, that "quality of life" meant eating lots and lots of crepes. Diane has since returned to America, but she didn't completely leave France behind. After all, diners can often spot her sporting a trademark red beret, and her bistro's menu reads like a love letter to rural French cuisine.

That means crepes, of course. To make them, chefs layer ultra thin pancakes over sweet fillings such as the La D?lice's nutella, vanilla custard, and raspberry jam. Savory crepes grant the option to build your own custom buckwheat or white crepes with fillings such as smoked salmon. Chefs venture into other areas of French cuisine as well, from croque monsieurs for lunch to boeuf bourguignon for dinner?either of which pair well with the bar's selection of beer, cider, and wine.

Yet for all of the French atmosphere, there's one part of Chez Machin that's decidedly stateside: the artwork. A desert abstract, created by film director Gus Van Sant, stretches along one side of the bistro's covered patio. Black and white paintings from local artists Yo and Peach Mutsu line the hallway, and other paintings and drawings rotate in and out of the dining rooms, turning the restaurant into an ever-changing art gallery.

Portland Restaurant Guide

Portland is renowned for its great craft beers, easy access to dramatic nature, independent spirit, excellent live music scene, and generally laid-back lifestyle. One of the city’s best kept secrets, though, is its outstanding culinary offerings. Portland restaurants serve up a wide variety of cuisines, and their flavorful offerings keep residents well satiated. From fine dining to food carts, there’s something in Portland to suit everyone’s taste.

Dining in Portland is incredibly diverse. If there’s one aspect of the city’s culinary scene that really stands out, it’s the food carts. Downtown is home to a whole court of food carts, serving up flavors from every corner of the globe. The term “food cart” can be a bit misleading though, since many of these small kitchens housed in trailers, like E-san Thai, Flogene’s Home Cookin’, and the Frying Scotsman, serve up the kind of sophisticated dishes normally reserved to sit-down restaurants.

Eating well in Portland also includes visiting the city’s gourmet dining spots. For haute French cuisine, Le Pigeon in Lower Burnside is the place to be. Andina in the Pearl District has mouth-watering tapas covered and Caffe Mingo in the Alphabet District is among Portland’s top Italian restaurants. One of the great features of dining in a fine restaurant in Portland is that it still retains a more casual feel than any other American city. It’s just great food without any pretentiousness.

No guide to the Portland food scene would be complete without mention of the city’s fantastic brew pubs. Portland is the birthplace of the microbrewery movement and some of the country’s most beloved beers are produced here. Deschutes, BridgePort, and Rogue are just a few of the brewpubs in town that serve up delectable eats with their flavorful sudsy creations. The Portland mainstay McMenamin’s can also be found in practically every one of the city’s neighborhoods, meaning good food and great beer are never far away.
