Beast, Portland

5425 N.E. 30th Ave.
Portland, OR, 97211, United States
TEL: (503) 841-6968

This northeast Portland newcomer isn’t so much a restaurant as a regularly occurring, eccentric dinner party in chef and co-owner Naomi Pomeroy’s exhibition kitchen. Dining is at a pair of communal tables, and there are just two seatings per evening (plus brunch on Sundays). Meals are prix fixe, either five-course or six-course (wine pairings optional), and there’s one nightly menu—no choices, no substitutions. Pomeroy and her talented staff prepare exquisite meals using sustainable, farm-fresh ingredients: recent choices included lamb loin chop with nectarine salsa, duck-fat roasted potatoes, and French green beans; and a rustic duck liver pâté with a tangy Seville orange marmalade. The to-die-for desserts might include a rhubarb-caramel upside-down cake with strawberry-tarragon ice cream.

Insider Tip:

Reservations are a near necessity, but walk-ins can grab a seat next door at Yakuza, a chic sake bar, while they wait for a table.
