Northwest Travel & Life: Spring Escapes to Portland’s Eastside Industrial District

21 02 2017

In the latest issue of Northwest Travel & Life, I recommend things to do and places to eat and drink in one of Portland’s more explorable new districts. From the article:

“Portland’s Central Eastside Industrial District (CEID) was once devoid of coveted urban treasures like authentic ethnic cuisine, craft cocktails, and coffee roasters. But just like the Pearl District before it, thanks to Portlanders’ genius at repurposing stuff, like neighborhoods, the CEID is now teeming with food, drink, and entertainment hotspots. As Portland’s famous roses bloom in spring, the streets are once again enlivened with cyclists and pedestrians, hopeful with the promise of sunshine and patio seating. Come curious, come hungry, come thirsty, and be ready to indulge in one of Portland’s coolest new destination neighborhoods. Here are our picks for a perfect CEID getaway.”

Eater Portland: Portland’s Must-Have Food Cart Dishes

8 02 2017

Another hat I wear for Eater Portland is the new editor of the Best Food Cart Dishes Map. From the article:

“By any standard, Portland is arguably the mobile food capital of the US. In honor of the city’s defining food movement, this map features 21 of the best food cart dishes currently available.

As opposed to most cities, the mobile food scene in Portland is dominated by carts, not trucks. Thanks to a combination of factors including city ordinances, many of the best carts are typically allowed to reside in one place. Groups of Portland food carts have popped up across the city, and these groups are called pods.

Over the years, a number of carts have become cornerstones of the scene—offering reliably excellent dishes that have garnered international media attention. Some of these carts move on to become full-fledged brick-and-mortar restaurants, while others, for a variety of reasons, fail to make the cut. So remember, when you try a spot below, you’re trying what could become Portland’s next hottest restaurant.

From the old guard to the new kids, these are the 21 must-have food cart dishes in Portland, right now.”
