Visit [[Produce Row]] on [[4th Street]] for a variety of yummy dining, and check out the [[Horse Brass Pub]] for an unusual English experience.  [[Hubers Café]] is a Portland tradition, but [[Carafe]], [[ClarkLewis]], and the [[Sinju Sushi]] also cater to the hipster crowd.  The west side has a variety of steak houses, but vegetarians might prefer the [[Vegetarian House]] or [[Paradox Cafe]][[Voodoo Doughnuts]] is a must for your creepy sugar fix.
