PORTLAND — Who doesn't like free chocolate? Tony's Chocolonely is biking around town today giving away its fine chocolates, and you can even request that it show up on your stoop using #nationalchocolateday and tagging the company on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. On a mission to end slave-made chocolate, the Dutch company started selling its chocolates in Portland—its first entrance to the US—last month.

DOWNTOWN — WWeek has announced that its restaurant of the year is Imperial, for its "high-end dining on the grand scale Portland hasn't seen done so successfully in a long time." With chefs Vitaly Paley and Doug Adams collaborating in the kitchen, WWeek writes that Imperial finally gives "Portland the 'big city' downtown restaurant it needed." [WWeek]

PORTLAND — Mark Bitterman, the owner of The Meadow salt shops on Mississippi Ave and NW 23rd, has released his new book, Bitterman's Field Guide to Bitters & Amari. The guide introduces the complex world of cocktail bitters and amari (amari are infused spirits such as Fernet Branca and Amaro Montenegro), with tasting notes, food-pairing recommendations, and cocktail recipes. It's the first handbook on the subject, and you can buy it here. [EaterWire]
