The January Hit List: Canard, Xiao Ye, Ox, and More


If you went all 2023 without being able to snag a seat at one of the city’s best new restaurants, this month is a great time to get back on the horse. With family gone and New Year’s resolutions in place — not to mention fewer crowds — January is a great time to go out for dinner in Portland. Still haven’t made it to Xiao Ye, L’Orange, or Jeju, which all made The Oregonian’s Best New List? Or made the pilgrimage to Northeast MLK’s Ox or Southeast’s subterranean cocktail hideout Scotch Lodge? Now’s the time. Where should you eat this month? We’ve got it in January’s Resy Hit List, with a collection of hit spots that might be just a bit easier to book this month.
