1403 SE Belmont St., farmspiritpdx.com. Dinner Wednesday-Saturday.
Portland has plenty of chef's tasting menus and prix fixe dinners. But Farm Spirit, in its new, far more spacious digs, remains unique for its dedication to plant-based, locavore dining. Gorgeous, playful dishes emerge from the kitchen one at a time—no mass production here, highlighting the bounty of the Pacific Northwest's plant life, and the menu changes regularly to evoke the seasons. By reservation only. $$$.
