Thom Hilton/Eater Portland
While Division and Hawthorne have long garnered national attention as great restaurant rows, East 28th Avenue has come into its own. The stretch between Northeast Sandy Boulevard and Southeast Stark boasts an incredible collection of restaurants, cafes, food carts, and bars that include the city’s top German food and beer selection, one of the city’s favorite fried chicken sandwiches, and Andes-region vegan cuisine.
In this map, we focus on the main strip, but traveling on East Burnside (Davenport, Luce) or Northeast Glisan (Han Oak, Providore Fine Foods, Friendship Kitchen) make this part of Portland an eater’s paradise. For our latest update, we focused on restaurants, cafes, and bars with sole locations on this strip, which eliminates Crema, Fifty Licks Ice Cream, Bamboo Sushi, and Staccato Gelato (don’t worry, you can find other locations across town). For more neighborhood guides, this stream may help.
