Spoiler alert: Eater discovered early this morning that Willamette Week's annual Restaurant Guide, which hits streets tomorrow (Wednesday), has picked Rodney Muirhead's much-loved Podnah's Pit, which opened its shiny new location on NE Killingsworth Street just last February, as its Restaurant of the Year. Those lucky enough to get an invite (and pay for the privledge of dining) at the family-style "secret supper" taking place tonight in honor of this auspicious accolade should be receiving an email notifying of them of the place right... about... now.
No word yet who might be the runner-up (St. Jack?) — or if WW even picked one (last year, the ROY honors went to Tasty N Sons, with Castagna named runner-up). Expect more dining guide coverage when the issue officially drops tomorrow.
