OPENTABLE -- OpenTable released its Top 100 Fit for Foodies list, a list of restaurants that serve the type of food that foodies like. Of the 100 restaurants, 13 are located in Portland, and the rest are spread across 21 states and the District of British Columbia. Yep, that means 29 states didn't have a single restaurant make the list, but Portland has 13. The Portland restaurants to make the list are Ava Gene's, Aviary, Bar Avignon, Beast, Castagna, DOC, Le Pigeon, Natural Selection, Noisette, Olympia Provisions Northwest, Park Kitchen, Roe, and Uptown Biliards Club.
