Jupiter NEXT Edgy Style Meets Luxury

Jupiter NEXT, a sleek six-story stunner that embraces that same edgy local style, but with luxurious touches written by Jen Stevenson Jupiter NEXT is the latest Jupiter team project. Since 2004, the Jupiter Hotel has been the inner eastside’s main boutique hotel squeeze, providing a uniquely Portland experience with its eclectic design, wildly popular basement music venue and lively Doug Fir Lounge (hence the earplugs on every nightstand). This summer, the Jupiter team debuts its latest project, Jupiter NEXT is a six-story hotel in Portland with lots of modern amenities like 60-inch flat screens, glass-cube bathrooms and in-room digital concierges. The 67-room, Works Progress Architecture-designed hotel’s location couldn’t be more prime. Portland’s inner eastside is hotter than ever, and while it’s easy to hop on a downtown-bound bus or the Portland streetcar, there’s really no reason to leave the neighborhood. After dinner, grab a rummy nightcap at the jungle-themed hotel…

A New Kind Of Jello Shot from Hell-O Jello in Portland

Just because you’ve outgrown Flip Cup and Edward Forty Hands (you have, haven’t you?) doesn’t mean you have to step away from Jell-O shots. Lizzy Spanbauer opened her food cart, Hell-O Jello, this spring in Portland. The cart serves up the alcohol-filled treats with air—saucy names, silly flavors and all sorts of designs and toppings.

Modern Portland Foursquare Home In SE

Walk down any street in inner Southeast Portland and you’ll see the Foursquare.

Bar Casa Vale

If Barcelona is out of the question, spend your spring break cozied up with a kalimotxo or cucumber and lemon-infused gin and tonic at renowned restaurateur Nate Tilden’s sexy semi-subterranean dinner joint, where the soft glow of the Balearic-blue-green tile bar casts just enough light on the menu that you know you want one of everything. Although challenging, it’s prudent to go easy on chef Jacob Harth’s pintxos, tapas and raciones—yes, they’re superb, particularly the Dungeness crab toast dusted with house-cured bottarga, Monterey squid a la plancha over smoked bone marrow, and silky black cod with Marcona almond romesco. But you absolutely must leave room for the large plates, especially the turmeric fried chicken, sweetbreads and morcilla-studded black rice paella, and otherworldly hearth-grilled lamb neck, set in a bed of green wheat harira and doused with salsa verde. For dessert, summon a glass of Valdespino Palo Cortado Viejo sherry or…

Proud Mary Coffee

written by Jen Stevenson Around this time of year, wintering in Australia starts to sound tempting, especially the sun, surf and sparkling ale parts. But if snowbirding Down Under isn’t in the cards, try the next best thing: a leisurely brunch at the new Melbourne-born coffee roaster and café that’s quickly captured the hearts of finicky Portland food lovers. Although best known for its rigorously sourced and roasted beans, Proud Mary is equally adept in the dining department, with a vibrant seasonal menu of brunch dishes that taste as good as they look, no small feat considering the kitchen’s eye for artistic detail. The breakfast sashimi is an exquisite tangle of wild-caught Oregon albacore, soft-boiled egg, heirloom carrot, fennel and fronds, the mile-high avocado toast puts other versions to shame, and the ricotta hotcake is an Instagram come to life—a pillow of vanilla-bean-flecked cake topped with a soft dollop of…
