50 Best New U.S. Restaurants
Portland, Oregon: Beast
Communal tables, two seatings, one menu, mostly meat, no substitutions—that’s the drill at this sizzling restaurant with chalkboard walls. Luckily Naomi Pomeroy is a terrific chef, so diners happily surrender control for a chance to indulge in her earthy charcuterie plates and braised pork cheeks with farm-happy sides. Dinner for two $105.
