Higgins Restaurant & Bar

1239 S.W. Broadway
Portland , OR , United States
(503) 222-9070

In the heart of the downtown theater and museum district, this venue houses both a white-linen-clad restaurant and a happily raucous, pressed-tin-ceiling bar (reservations are required in the latter, except on Saturdays). Chef Greg Higgins opened his own restaurant in 1994, after a decade of helming the kitchen at the posh nearby Heathman Hotel. Here, he creates elegant Pacific Northwest cuisine with locally sourced flavors and ingredients; try his halibut tagine with almonds and harissa, or a magret (seared breast) and confit of duck with cheddar polenta and Pinot Noir-poached pears.

Tip: Although Higgins has a terrific wine list, the extensive selection of hard-to-find beers—from Oregon’s light and crisp Laurelwood Organic Free Range Red Ale to the hearty Black Boss Porter from Poland—is even more compelling.
