Where to eat this week.
Before 6 pm, after 10 pm and all day Sunday, in the bar of downtown French bistro Little Bird, gain access to a true Portland marvel: a $6 double-stacked brioche-bun brie burger literally cheaper than at Burgerville. It comes à l’américaine and reassuringly greasy.
A moment comes with every Stoopid Burger—be it Silly, Dummy, or flat-out Ignorant—when the sandwich takes over, edging out all distraction. It silences conversation. The burger renders you dazed, meat-drunk and dumbfounded. Not just stupid, but Stoopid.
Under former Imperial chef Doug Adams, the Woodsman has entered a new golden age. Order the fried chicken, or the trout, or the pimento dip, or the oysters, or… honestly, you can’t go wrong.
Anybody who’s tried to get a delicious, ridiculously stacked Stoopid Burger at their cart on Williams this month, take heart: They’re not gone, they just went inside. Stoopid Burger is now a brick and mortar restaurant.
Burger Madness is a seeded tournament pitting 64 Portland patties against each other.
