Dwell gets some tips from a local architect on the city's modern design and Portland's foodie scene. Christopher Campbell says:
Fore Street always gets a great deal of attention but there are a great number of excellent restaurants all through town. Places like Evangeline, Hugo's, Miyake, Bresca, (and on and on) are all top notch. One of the best guides for food in town is Portland Food Map the places they call out with four and five stars are really must-eat stops if you're planning a visit.
