Firstly, the map gives preference to high-end restaurants in which the $29 price tag is an extreme bargain. Secondly, it gives preference to new and noteworthy spots worth taking for a test drive. Lastly, it features those restaurants that have proven to supply good deals in the past, which is to say they do not simply cut down on portion sizes but develop smart, tasty, and plentiful plates just for you.

Without further ado, here is where to eat for Portland Dining Month 2017. And as with all Eater maps, note the map points are not ranked: They're organized geographically.
