A Paleo Diner
Owner Richard Satnick began Dick’s Kitchen (704 NW 21st. Ave.) as a way to share the delicious food and recipes he discovered while researching his own nutritional and dietary needs. It’s perhaps the nation’s first diner to systematically and actively incorporate Paleo dietary needs into its menu by offering mouthwatering fare made from healthy, humanely raised ingredients.
On NW 23rd between Uptown Cleaners and Exit you’ll find Uptown Billiards Club (120 NW 23rd Ave.). It’s a cool vintage jazzy joint with sultry decor, down-to-earth staff, fun things to do, and a great food and drinks. They have a knowledgeable wait staff, and superb bartenders who really know how to mix the perfect cocktail.
More than 20 years ago, Danny Cardoso opened the first authentic taqueria in Portland, derived from his mother’s receipts of Puebla, Mexico. Where home-cooked food simmers for hours and brings families and communities together. At Santa Fe Taqueria and Cantina (831 NW 23rd Ave.) customers can choose any item on the menu to customize their meal as its being made in front of them. Vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options are available.
