The October Hit List: Miss Delta, Fish & Rice, Verdigris, and More


As the first full month of fall, October in Portland always feels like both a mourning of summer and a full embrace of cooler weather and changing leaves ahead. Dining out feels similar, with diners finding a balance of patio celebrations on warm evenings, and cozier, comforting dishes to enjoy at home. Channel summer with grain bowls at Feel Good PDX and chirashi bowls at Fish & Rice, before settling into fall with five spice-infused bay-leaf curry at Northwest Portland’s Burma Joy, and Southern classics at Miss Delta. Where should you eat this month? We’ve got it in our October Hit List.
