THE ORIGINAL: EAT HERE. DRINK HERE. BE HERE.
In the 1950s and 60s, diners and supper clubs were social hubs, places we gathered to end our days or begin our nights. The menus were comprised of comfort foods brought to this country by the immigrants who shaped it, and were refined to satisfy contemporary tastes. The Original, the downtown destination for all-day Portland dining, renews that spirit for the 21st century by serving up playful variations on the classic standards in an atmosphere that’s stylish, sophisticated and cool.
So, settle into a spacious booth for a comforting brunch or a brisk business lunch. Stretch out in our plush retro-luxe banquette for an elegant dinner. Unwind at our candle-lit bar for that much deserved post-prandial nightcap. At the Original, we honor the past as we listen in on the pulse of Portland’s adventurous and evolving tastes.
