Out to eat: Portland – Kenny & Zuke’s

I am quite fond of Portland, Oregon. If you love books, green spaces and weird attractions, take a mini-break to Portland. And the restaurant scene just gets more and more inviting, with cooks and chefs inspired by the Northwest’s bounty of fresh ingredients. As a November 2008 article in Gourmet magazine attests, “There’s a real sense that Portland today is to the culinary arts what Paris was to the visual arts a hundred years ago.” (!)

Last weekend a quintet of us were in Portland, and in need of brunch. We hoped to taste the southern cuisine of Screen Door, but circumstances prevented us from making a reservation. There was to be a 45-minute wait, and wait we could not.

We were headed to Powell’s anyway, so we went downtown to check out Kenny & Zuke’s delicatessen.

We were not disappointed. With latkes, bagels and lox, it’s hard to go wrong, I say.

And if you go in for a pastrami or a reuben – Kenny & Zuke’s sandwiches do look amazing.
