Best wines in town. Fantastic staff. Pro-leagues without the attitude

With great food, an amazing bar, and a fantastic wine list, Drifter's Wife is recognized as one of Portland's best restaurants for good reason. Get a reservation (available via Resy on their website) far in advance if you want a table at on the weekend. In July and August weekends are usually booked…

This place is everything that you have read about. James Beard winners with a dreamy wine selection. There is always a wait so get there early for happy hour at the bar at 4.
