As is the tradition at Eater, it's time for the annual Year in Eater survey. For the Portland version, we asked a group of notable chefs, cooks, and people we know a bunch of questions. Responses are related in no particular order; all are cut, pasted and unedited herein. Yesterday, we discovered everyone's Top Newcomers. Now, let's go for the Top Restaurant Standbys.
