7 Reasons Planners Won’t Want to Leave Portland, Oregon

2. Trifecta Tavern

I (thankfully) popped into this restaurant/bakery/bar hybrid by James Beard Award-winning Ken Forkish after a local recommended it. Trifecta serves up a fantastic burger smothered in authentic pimento cheese—and as a Southerner, I feel confident making that statement. If you’re feeling adventurous, belly up to the bar and order a bone marrow Manhattan. Bar Manager Colin Carroll infuses bourbon with wood-fire grill charred marrow for a perfectly Portland (read: unusual) drink. Look for its offshoot, Trifecta Annex, beginning May 1 in Pine Street Market, the city’s first food hall, for all the gluten: made-from-scratch croissants and pizzas, and… wait for it… a toast bar.
