Formerly an industrial area, Portland, Oregon’s Pearl District is now one of the city’s trendiest neighborhoods, with a number of outstanding restaurants residing in beautifully renovated warehouses and factories. Whether you’re looking for contemporary Peruvian cuisine, farm-to-table fare or award-winning charcuterie, here are 10 must-try restaurants when dining out here.


Andina takes its cue from the family’s Peruvian roots, serving an eclectic mix of traditional South American cuisine and Novo-Andean inspired dishes crafted from locally sourced produce. Established in 2003, the restaurant has attracted a firm following over the years and has received rave reviews from local critics. A stylish, vibrant dining room and live music form the backdrop in which to enjoy dishes like carapulcra con Puerco; pork loin stuffed with fontal cheese served with a potato and wild boar stew.

Irving Street Kitchen

Serving contemporary American with distinct Southern flavors and located in a beautifully renovated warehouse, Irving Street Kitchen is a vibrant restaurant and bar opened in 2010. The smart, stylish restaurant makes full use of its locatin and features a converted loading dock as a patio, exposed brick and ductwork and wooden beams complemented by striking modern chandeliers and an airy, open plan.
