Top 100 Portland Restaurants WW

Willamette Week just released the Top 100 Restaurant guide and some of my favorites are on there including The Farm Cafe, Noble Rot, Belly, South Park Grill, Cafe Allora and more!

Here is a link to the list:

LOL lougee! I kinda wondered how many of the 100 the WW reviewers themselves have been to when the restaurant picked as "Restaurant Of The Year Runner-Up" is misspelled. Glad to see though that a couple of my favorites are still far enough under the radar to have not even made the list.

phril- thats because its Willamette Week and Gresham or Tualatin might as well be John Day! :) Its hard to convince people who live in portland to go more than about 30 city blocks- believe me I've tried! :)

A TA supper club might be sort of fun- if we want to reveal ourselves :)

We could all wear masks? :)

I thin we would soon get a reputation amongst the restaurants if we booked as a group and write reviews.

I agree with phirl - the article was rather one sided. But, alas - it is WW.

You say that like it's a bad thing? }:)

If you really wanted to try this - how many Portland-metro area TAers are there that would be interested? if we kept it to small groups of 6, then it would not be near as notable.

If we do this, I want us all to wear matching lettermen's jackets :)

I think it could be fun. It could be a supper club/discussion group. We had a Portland DE meetup a few years ago, but only three DEs were able to attend. (it was a bad time, in December before Christmas)

I was only joking about the lettermen jackets - but TA has been known to send out some free swag for meetups like this.

Good catch, mistletoe! It should be Castagna.

Just for fun I counted how many of these places I have eaten at. Up to 38 and tonight it will be 39 after I check out Violetta in the wonderful new Director's Park downtown!
