Food Reviews & Stories
I know the secret Stonecutters society on The Simpsons rigs the Oscars, but who rigs the prices at the area Indian lunch buffets? In the past year, they all seemed to go from $6.95 to $7.95. Swagat's buffet is still one of the best, with plenty of items on offer that go beyond the usual saag paneer/   More

Food Reviews & Stories

The Skyline's grilled cheese? Just $2.95, as it should be. The menu's full of other a   More

Restaurant Guide 2005


Food Reviews & Stories
Have one of those all-the-rage farm dinners without actually mucking out to the farm (though hay bales and manure might be easier to wade through than all the recent construction in this part of the Pearl District).

Restaurant Guide 2005


Food Reviews & Stories
As the adamantly local menu explains in detail, most of the elements in any Three Square meal were grown, raised, caught or roasted within an afternoon's drive of Portland, and were probably baked, cured, smoked or brined on site.
