The April Hit List: Verdigris, Montelupo, Tope, Raij PDX, and More


It’s finally spring in Portland! After slogging through months of gray and rain (OK, we still have some of those days but they’re far less frequent) we’ve finally made it to the other side, filled with blossoms, bright daffodils and patio weather.

And just in time, there’s the secret-ish back patio at Bit House Saloon, where you can find new plates from the Magna team; Verdigris’ sunny patio, home to a new $1 oyster special; and the wooden patio at The Schooner in Netarts overlooking the placid bay. Where should you enjoy the milder weather — or order takeout — this month? We’ve got it in our April Hit List.
