General

Paragon is a very pleasant restaurant situated near the center of Portland in the Pearl district, an excellent place for lunch or Sunday brunch. They describe themselves as a "Gastropub". It occupies a corner site thereby giving it two sides of windows and hence plenty of natural light. It is typically American in its ambience and presentation giving it a very pleasant atmosphere.

The Bar

The bar is quite large and very comprehensively stocked - if you can't get the drink of your choice here you probably can't get it anywhere. It also has it's own bar menu which is in fact a shortened version of the main restaurant menu. It also boasts 12 local artisan beers on tap.

Happy Hour

Happy hour is particulerly good with a varity of appetizers at $6, special cocktails and wines at $6 - $7.5 and draft beers at $3 and $4.5. It has an interesting twist to it in that it is from 4.30 pm to 6.00 pm and 9.00 pm until closing time.

Menu

The menus is quite short but also quite varied. The brunch menu offers breakfast items as well as lunch items. items of note are:

Smoked salmon eggs Benedict. This is an unusual variation on traditional eggs Benedist with the Canadian bacon substituted with smokes poached salmon. Take noye that the smoked salmon is hot smoked and looks more like ordinary cookes salmon. The portion is a double with potatoes on the side.

Mussels. These are cooked in white wine with an orange-Sambucca flavored and herb mixture sauce. A very interesting combination which makes a very unusual but excellent taste.

Kale and roasted cauliflower. Just as the name suggest but make sure you ask for extra cauliflower otherwise it just looks like a plate of kale with a spoonful of roasted cauliflower on the side.

Their own French fries are rosemary flavored

Drinks

The drinks menu features some specific Paragon items. For example the Paragon bloody Mary is excellent.

Also the Paragon wines are very good. These are what they call the house wines and are very reasonably priced.

Pros

Food is excellent, particularly the Sunday Brunch menu.

Reasonable prices.

Cons

You have to park in the street which is a little inconvenient

There rae two other restaurants within the Paragon group, one in Berkeley and one in San Francisco, California.

Once again this could be a good opportunity to get menu ideas if you are an amateur chef.
