BEAVERTON’S RESTAURANT ROW

Restaurant Row encompasses all of the establishments in the historic section of “Old Town” Beaverton

Downtown Beaverton is shaping up to be a culinary destination, which attracts locals, Portland diners and visitors alike. Beaverton’s “Restaurant Row” is a collection of dining and beverage establishments within a block radius, providing a global dining experience to this city of less than 100,000 residents.

Dining

Asian cuisine rules supreme on Restaurant Row. Try the unique flavors of curries and tea leaf salad at Top Burmese Bistro Royal, the comforting bowls of ramen from Japanese import, Afuri, the fresh flavors of Koya Sushi, and the Korean specialties of 1st Street Pocha. These restaurants join the venerable Nak Won, which has been a go-to favorite in Historic Downtown Beaverton for more than a decade and has for years been regarded as one of the best Korean restaurants in the Portland region.

New Spots For Cool Brews and Cocktails

New cocktail bar Bar June recently opened on Restaurant Row. There’s also Portland’s uber-popular Loyal Legion Oregon Beer Hall, with 70 beers and ciders on tap, which also houses it’s “secret” speakeasy bar, Flora (reservations are required).

Beaverton brewery Binary Brewing Co.  pours its unique and popular craft brews at its new flagship storefront. Breakside Brewing‘s new beer garden, featuring five food trucks, opened in July 2023. New craft brewer, Lazy Days Brewing (which took over the spot from Ex Novo Brewing) features Detroit-style pizza paired with its vast array of craft beers, including some tapes featuring Ex Novo’s popular brews, keeping that brand alive in the Pacific Northwest.

Wine Bar and Bottle Shop in the Heart of Downtown Beaverton

Syndicate Wine Bar is downtown Beaverton’s first wine bar and bottle shop. The bar features a growing wine library of more than 250 different wines, including their own, labeled under the Syndicate Wines label.

Quick Bites

Big’s Chicken  is a venture from four local chefs–including Ben Bettinger, winner of the “Thrill of the Grill” challenge in season 22 of Chopped–with a deep love for chicken. The restaurant’s specialty is Alabama-style chicken. The chicken is smoked then slathered in a white barbecue sauce that they like to call “white gold.” Enjoy the perfectly crisped chicken, which is best enjoyed alongside their house-made coleslaw and signature Jo-Jos.

La Floridita PDX, is the newest addition to restaurant row. This Cuban and Columbian-inspired cafe, which started at the Beaverton Farmers’ Market, specializes in coffee and pastries, including croquetas, pastelitos and more.

Lionheart Coffee Company opened its second location in downtown Beaverton, with its “experience bar,” which allows patrons to try a breadth of brewing methods. In addition to coffee drinks, guests will find perfectly brewed matcha lattes, a variety of teas, kombucha, beer and wine, and breakfast.

UR Mediterranean Restuaurant offers big flavors through its tasty menu of kebabs, shawarma, gyros, falafel and more. UR serves authentic Mediterranean food in a casual, fast-food style atmosphere (limited seating).

The Whole Bowl is a window-service spot that serves healthy bowls with brown rice, black and red beans, avocado, cilantro, black olives, cheese, sour cream and Tali sauce. Bowls are nut, gluten, wheat and hydrogenated oil free and diners can customize it to make it vegan. The Whole Bowl has seven locations throughout the Portland area.
