Outdoor Dining Options In Portland, Oregon
As we await the next phase of the global pandemic, restaurants across the country are continuing with their outdoor options in order to stay afloat. Restaurants in Portland, Oregon are no different.
With picturesque views across the city, dining outdoors in Portland is actually quite an experience. If you are in the area, or are looking to visit in early 2021, we’ve curated this list of outdoor dining options.
Note: All Portland restaurants are currently only offering takeout until at least Dec. 18.
‘Top Chef’ star Gregory Gourdet was set to open this wood-fired Haitian concept in a yurt village in Portland’s Redd building on Dec. 3. With the current restrictions, he will spend the extra weeks getting the set up just right. Once open, feast on Haitian staples like plantain and roasted pork in your own private heated yurt.
2. Laurelhurst Market
As we move into the colder months, heated outdoor spaces are going to be clutch. Laurelhurst Market, considered one of the city’s best steakhouses, has set up a large heated outdoor space for patrons to enjoy. Menu items include steak frites, grilled Oregon albacore tuna, and crispy Brussels sprouts.
3. Mama Bird
Located at 2145 NW Raleigh St., this “new American” eatery recently converted its outdoor space to a cold weather friendly option with covered yet well-ventilated tents. Indulge in wood fire grilled chicken, grilled pineapples, and a variety of sauces.
4. Hat Yai
Did someone say Southern Thai fried chicken? Well this fusion concept has you covered with not one, but two locations across PDX. You can now dine outdoors next to small and cozy fire pits, as we approach winter.
This cozy bistro whips up things like miso deviled eggs , fresh oysters, and watermelon slushies (when it’s warm). Now, you can take the fun outside and under the lights. Did we tell you that the cocktails are out of this world?
