Delve into the Rose City’s colorful and sometimes tumultuous past through the memories, meals and recipes that put these bygone restaurants on the map. From the Quality Pie, a favorite of Portlanders from all walks of life, to the River Queen, which enjoyed a long and storied life as a working vessel before becoming a stationary restaurant on the Willamette River, visitors and locals alike have enjoyed a unique variety of eateries. Celebrities once enjoyed steak dinners in the Barbary Coast’s Roaring 20s Room, while Café Lena offered simpler fare to poets and dreamers in search of a relaxed atmosphere. Join author Theresa Griffin Kennedy for a sumptuous tour of Portland’s shuttered cafés, diners and grand dining rooms.
