By Ethan M. Rogers / May 25, 2023

I wasn’t planning on going to breakfast in Portland. I was supposed to be on a train headed for Seattle. Things don’t always work to plan, so I decided to walk around Portland and find somewhere to eat. What I found was a bright and airy little place in the Pearl District called Screen Door.…

I’m not the most adventurous when it comes to food; in fact, that has been a complaint from just about every friend I’ve ever had. Just to get me in the door of a restaurant I’ve never been to, it has to have at least one thing on the menu that I know I like…
