5128 N Albina Ave., 503-282-2934, redfoxpdx.com.

The Red Fox's entire food and drink menu consists of fewer than 10 items. That's one way of reading this tucked-away, no-frills joint. Another way is to call it what it is—a genuine neighborhood treasure adored by all who know of its existence. The Red Fox is the very definition of "local": It's a small spot featuring cozy outside tables, cool music and a precious, low-key vibe.
