On Friday, for a change of pace, we asked Eater readers to wax nostalgic about Portland's long-lost, much-missed restaurants, and both the comment section and the tipline were flooded with responses.
Among the shared memories: meals from restaurants once open for decades, bites from short-lived spots that made their mark, and some moments from former restaurant employees reminiscing about the good ol' days. One reader offers their list and sums it up: "Alba Osteria (their amazing agnolotti dal plin), Little Red Bike Cafe, Garden State, Curbside Grill, & Lucy's Original. What a freaking depressing post this was to write." Below is a map to 19 now-closed favorites, as well as the full list of nominees.
Also nominated: Sweetwater's Jam House, La Salsa, Casa U Betcha, Garden State, Lorenzo's, Carte Blanche, Couvron, Indigene, Ten 01, D.F., Criollo Bakery, Limo Peruvian, Kappaya, Lucy's Table, Lagniappe, a Thyme Garden, Wheel of Fortune, Macheezmo Mouse, Belly, Buckman Bistro, Taste of Bali, William's on 12th, Gotham Tavern, Oregon Ice Works, Bangkok Kitchen, Surabaya, Nutshell, Sel Gris, Caprial's, Cafe Des Amis, NY Sub Shop, Lu Yen's, Lazlows, Curbside Grill, Lucy's Original.
