The maroon awning beckons locals to this Phoenix restaurant and wine bar. Located in the base of an apartment complex and within steps of the light rail, Portland's is a popular after-work stop. Neighbors gather around the circular bar for no-fuss cocktails and comfort fare. Be sure to try the parmesan fries—this fried delight was named “Best 50 Dishes” by Phoenix Magazine. For something more substantial, the Tommy Burger with applewood-smoked bacon and Stilton is named for a regular patron.
