Reed College Joins the Gourmet Guide


We're thrilled to welcome Reed College in Portland, Oregon, to the Gourmet Guide. We hope you're visiting this Pacific Northwest campus, because we've got some great recommendations from fine dining to food carts -- think quinoa cannoli with passionfruit filling, Willapa Bay oysters, and pommes frites with rosemary-truffle ketchup. Oh, and remember it's famous for its perfectly roasted coffee, too.  Located in the Willamette Valley, one of the country’s richest growing regions, Portland's food scene is known for innovation, sustainability and a Pacific Rim openness to international cuisines. From farm-to-table cuisine to  a wealth of food carts you could spend your entire four years of college exploring, there's something for everyone. Check out the favorites of Reed students and faculty here.
