Eem List
Former Portland Mercury restaurant critic Andrea Damewood called this Thai barbecue spot with tropical cocktails "the restaurant equivalent of Lizzo: infectious, critically and commercially acclaimed, and addictive AF," writing, "You cannot go wrong in ordering, from the hot fried cauliflower to the divine brisket in white curry to the fried rice with burnt ends. And both the cocktails and mocktails are some of the best in town—my favorite piña colada, made with coffee and salt to keep it from being too cloying, is on the menu again." The restaurant has individual booths with fire pits for outdoor dining.

Güero List
The Portland Mercury's Suzette Smith writes, "I've biked past Güero's streetside deck, off NE 28th, at golden hour and appraised its glory—filled to capacity with jubilant pods of people chowing down on tortas and raising mezcal margaritas. Something about Güero's design and approach feels cool, like they meant to build a big patio on NE Davis, no biggie."
