A whole new breed of chef's table has arrived. The scene now flowers with avant-garde cocktails, front-row seats at super-casual seafood meccas, and stellar sushi tastings.

Holdfast Dining in Portland, Oregon

16 of 18

This reservations-only, 18-seat restaurant started as a pop-up, but eventually the space in the front of urban winery Fausse Piste became permanent, thanks largely to the chef’s counter. Here chefs Will Preisch and Joel Stocks describe each plate as they hand deliver it, offering up dishes including delicious spot prawn with jicama. Be sure to buy tickets online—you’ll have a choice of a six-course menu on Thursday with three wine pairings for $65, a nine-course weekend menu with five wine pairings for $90, or a 10-course collaboration dinner with chefs around the country for $125.
