Lovely’s Fifty Fifty
4039 N Mississippi Avenue
Kid-friendly (Pizza and ice cream! Who
can resist?) and adult palate approved.
Naturally leavened artisan pizzas topped
with organic and locally sourced ingredients are the main event here. Get
yours topped with egg, arugula or spicy
and fruity Calabrian chiles. If you’ve
got room, order ice cream favorites like
malted milk ball, mint stracciatella,
salted caramel and quince vanilla bean
for the whole table.
Mother’s Bistro and Bar
212 SW Stark Street
Just like mom used to make . . . if mom
were an accomplished chef. This upscale
slow-cook bastion in the heart of down-
town Portland, serves up comfort food,
three meals a day. Stick-to-your-ribs dishes
like chicken & dumplings, mom’s meatloaf
and gravy, and Mother’s macaroni and
cheese du jour for dinner. Chef and owner,
Lisa Schroeder, a mother and grandmother
herself and critically acclaimed author of,
Mother’s Best is a stickler for good food,
made right. The dining room is warm and
welcoming to people of all ages with its
enchanting crystal chandeliers, natural light
from surrounding windows, and a play area
for the kiddos. Hot tip: try the wild salmon
hash at breakfast.
3223 NE Broadway Street
A much-beloved Portland staple since the
late 80s, Nicholas’s delectable Lebanese and
Middle Eastern fare has survived the artisan
influx, the door-closing recession that left
many lesser restaurants out of business, and
now the trendy food cart scene. They not
only survived, they’ve thrived, branching
out from their original SE Grand location
with two bigger, more chi chi locations on
NE Broadway and in Gresham. Nicholas
is known for their big portions of authentic
middle-eastern food, their extensive menu
and their signature house-made fresh pita.
It’s a great place to share a unique meal with
the whole family.
6 SE 28th Avenue
Cousin to Langbaan (the highly-lauded-six-month-waitlist-for-a-reservation-secret-so-ciety-of-upscale-Thai-restaurants) Paadee
is more casual, yet just as tasty Thai street
fare. Never-miss dishes include the tangy
and salty Peek Gai Tod (fried chicken wings
in a Sriracha-fish sauce glaze), the tantalizing Sai Grog E-San (fermented rice and
pork sausage), hangar steak salad, Ba Mhee
Pitsanulok (a ramen-like soup featuring egg
noodles, in a spicy lime and pork broth with
pork belly, red pork, ground pork, green
beans, ground peanuts, sprouts, and scallions), seasonal duck curry and seasonal
tempura fried asparagus salad.
