Lucy Brennan opened the Mint, a 40-seat Latin and Mediterranean-tinged bistro, in 2001 in the city's historic Frederick Torgler Building and derived its name from the Greek symbol for hospitality. The menu showcases Pacific Northwest ingredients and includes a burger with house-smoked bacon and pickles, and Red Bend rockfish with cauliflower puree, roasted spinach, and garlic chips. Brennan expanded next door in 2003 with 820, a cocktail lounge with an 18-foot bar, sunken seating, and an outdoor patio. The bar serves 48 different cocktails, including the Ad Lib, made with a cilantro and vodka mojito and sugared rim. 

Insider Tip:

Take time to explore the Frederick Torgler Building, which is part of the National Register of Historic Places and dates to 1894, when a local real estate developer built the two-story brick building near the Willamette River.
