Current Portland Restaurants

Savoy Tavern

portland cheese curd (3K)Well I can't find a web site for them, so here's the Citysearch link for the Savoy Tavern and Bistro. 2 words: Cheese Curds. Go and have some deep fried beer battered cheese curds.
I've actually eaten here twice and had great food each time. Fab mac-n-cheese, and a house-made veggie burger. Prices are a little spendy for my taste - definitely not super-cheap, but reasonable.

Savoy Tavern & Bistro

Portland, OR 97202
