The Resy Hit List: Where In Portland You’ll Want to Eat Right Now


There’s no question we hear more often: Where should I go eat? And while we at Resy know it’s an honor to be the friend who everyone asks for restaurant advice, we also know it’s a complicated task. That’s where the Resy Hit List comes in.

We’ve designed it to be your essential resource for dining in Portland: a monthly-updated (and newly expanded!) guide to the restaurants in that you won’t want to miss — tonight or any night.

Four Things In Portland Not to Miss This Month

  • Le Clown and Matta at Dame: Restaurant hub Dame and Lil’ Dame continue to host some of the best pop-ups in town. Last month, Matta returned to the Dame space with a three day/week residency, and new pop-up Le Clown, bringing “modern French bistronomy” to the Lil’ Dame space, has quickly emerged as one of the city’s must-snag reservations.
  • Tabor Bread Reopens: Beloved bakery Tabor Bread finally passed all its inspections after renovating its Southeast Belmont bakery. Now find expanded indoor seating, back patio space, a new deck oven, and all of the same fantastic breads and baked goods available daily.
  • No Saint, Yes Lunch: From midday Thursday to Sunday, pizza haven No Saint has launched a short and sweet “caffe” menu to balance out its evening hours. Find a short lunch list, including a quartet of sandwiches on housemade focaccia, pastries, and drinks. (Just don’t ask for the WiFi password.) Or, needless to say, book a table for dinner here.
  • Nimblefish Brings Back à la Carte: Four days a week, Portland’s Edomae-style sushi restaurant Nimblefish, has opened up a 5-seat a la carte counter from 5 – 9 p.m. Separate from its $95 omakase menu, “Nimble-Chan” will offer high-quality sashimi, limited rolls, chirashi, and a short set of small appetizers. Book here.
