Portland restaurant culture runs deep. And though it's easy to get distracted by the new restaurants opening every week, it's important to remember the city has decades-old classics that’ve made Portland food what it is today. In the last year, some of the iconic Portland-area spots that have held on through the decades — Canton Grill, for instance — have shut down or gone on indefinite hiatus; however, a number of historic Portland restaurants and bars have weathered the incessant challenges of the last year, even without their dining rooms.

Some are only selling takeout; some are opening up for indoor dining once again. Nonetheless, they’re staying afloat, the way they have for years.
