The Woodsman Tavern and Market in Portland, OR

Julie Carlson August 30, 2013

Reason enough to contemplate a move to Portland, OR: the Woodsman Tavern & Market, a pitch-perfect Pacific Northwest watering hole and seafood grill with an adjacent artisan-focused market.

Despite the been-there-forever look of the interiors, owner Duane Sorenson (of Stumptown fame) rehabbed the space from the ground up, with new banquettes stained to look old and a collection of vintage landscape paintings bordering on the kitsch. GQ‘s Alan Richman called the Woodsman one of the best new restaurants of 2012 (chef Jason Barwikowski “steals smartly and shamelessly from around the globe,” he says). For more information, go to the Woodsman Tavern and Market.

Photos by David Lanthan Reamer (his blog, Sixty Seconds with David Reamer, chronicles his adventures as a Portland, OR-based food photographer and is well worth a visit), unless otherwise noted.
