Portland Top 25 Restaurants: May 2016

One thing remains constant on the Portland food scene: the food. It’s phenomenal. And the greatness isn’t limited to a certain stable of establishments, as demonstrated by this month’s Top 25 PDX Restaurants.

In fact, there are three newcomers to the Top 10 alone — Maurice, Langbaan, and Pok Pok.

Portland is known for exotic Thai flavors and Langbaan and Pok Pok are putting Portland on the map.

And, bringing French influences to the table, Maurice is a “modern luncheonette,” serving a variety of pastries, Nordic-French fare, coffee, and even cocktails.

Also new to the Top 25 are Bamboo Sushi NW, which claims to be the world’s first certified sustainable sushi restaurant; Olympia Provisions SE, which has evolved from its days as the city’s first salumeria to being renowned for fine European-style dishes; Clyde Common, a European-style tavern; and Nostrana’s regional Italian fare.

But don’t worry; the list hasn’t changed that much. Some old favorites are still among the Top 5 like pizza fave Apizza Scholls, Taylor Railworks’ American cuisine, and Ataula, featuring a modern Spanish ‘tapeo’ culture.  

Check out the full Top 25  old and new, tried and true  below, as ranked through the social consumer data by Foodable Labs.
