Culture Dose: Portland Dining Month

Looking for a good excuse to eat your way through charming, welcoming Portland? We know, we know; it’s a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it. Chew on this: During the entire month of March, PDX serves up 31 days of delectable fare at a price that may—upon first glance—seem like a typo. Portland Dining Month means three-course dinner menus available at 120-plus restaurants for just $29 (seriously!).

For the eighth year, this culinary extravaganza gives locals and visitors alike the chance to dive in at established classics and buzzed-about newbies that’ve recently joined the Portland restaurant circuit. This seems a great opportunity to try gems like Tusk, Lincoln and Kachka, or use this helpful list to find another alluring option (or options!).

You can feel good about booking tables, too, since the event once again partners with Oregon Food Bank, making a donation to the hunger relief organization for every reservation booked through the OpenTable links on PortlandDiningMonth.com.

Next up to please your palate: The many delicious and fun-filled events of Taste Washington, taking place in and around Seattle from March 23 through 26. Stay tuned, and get hungry!

About Corinne Whiting

Corinne, an east coast native who relocated here from the other Washington in 2011, was bit by the travel bug early on. She lived in Strasbourg, France (during her junior year at Georgetown University) and in Edinburgh, Scotland, where she got a masters degree in Cultural Studies. She feels very grateful to have explored incredible spots on our globe ranging from Bolivia and Egypt to Turkey and China, but there are passport pages yet to fill (and travel tales yet to be written!). After serving as associate editor at Where magazine in D.C. for five years, Corinne has embarked on a new adventure here in the PNW as a freelance writer and photographer, contributing to publications like National Geographic Traveler, the Alaska Airlines in-flight magazine, Amtrak's OnTrak, 1889 Washington, 1859 Oregon, Visit Seattle and so on. She loves exploring this incredible corner of the country while debunking the rain myths, upping her coffee quotient, hearing heaps of live music and finding her Zen near the water as often as possible.
