Reasonable Hype vs. Unreasonable Hype

New, 4 comments

Robin Goldstein, author of Fearless Critic Portland, takes on the "most over-hyped, underwhelming spots in PDX." Candy, Jake's, El Gaucho, The Heathman, and Rontom's make the cut, while runners-up include Vault Martini Bar, Pearl District's Bluehour, and Teardrop Lounge. Places deserving of hype, on the other hand, include Portland Monthly Best Restaurant pick Park Kitchen, Willamette Week's Restaurant of the Year Beaker & Flask, Andina, newly single-owned Beast, and Henry's 12th Street Tavern. Arguments? Thoughts? Concerns? Chime in in the comments. [PowellsBooks.BLOG]
