The Star Portland

Pearl District

This celebrated pizza spot is one of the best new restaurants in Portland. It's the spot to go in town for both deep-dish and thin-crust pizza, served in a relaxing and welcoming Portland environment. Start with the roasted broccolini with fresh garlic and chili flakes or the meatballs with house marinara. For spicier tastes, try the spicy sausage pizza with Calabrese sausage and cherry peppers. The hearty deep-dish pizza menu boasts the "All-Star" with bacon, meatballs, sausage, pepperoni, and mozzarella. Pair the pizzas with a local Portland beer, like the Mystery Cloud Hazy from Gigantic Brewing or the Ashland Amber Ale from Caldera Brewing Company.

The nearby city of Vancouver (the one in Washington) is one of the best new restaurants in Portland. It features one of the more intriguing styles of cuisine in the Pacific Northwest - Georgian. Not the style of the American state; instead, this fun space features recipes from the Eastern European country of Georgia. Try Georgian dishes like traditional dumplings, marinated grilled meat, and cheese bread. Another favorite? The "kababi," with a ground chicken patty and traditional spices on a lavash flatbread. It's a fascinating place in the Northwest for an out-of-the-box meal.
