The May Hit List: Gino’s, Papa Haydn, Da Pine Grinds, and More


Rising temps and longer, sunnier days only mean one thing in Portland: patio season is back. Between more restaurants than ever offering creative ways to eat outside, and the current frowning upon indoor options,  there are endless opportunities to soak up the returning sun.

So head back to Alberta Street favorite Tin Shed for dog-friendly brunch options, take a trip to Troutdale to try reimagined Hawaiian plates at Da Pine Grinds, get in line early for a lacy-edged, $5 smashburger, or indulge in an iconic Portland brunch at Papa Haydn. Where should you eat outside this month? We’ve got the choice picks in our May Hit List.
