This fall, I traveled to Portland, Oregon for the 5th annual Feast Portland event—a food and drink festival that showcases the energy, creativity and enthusiasm that’s driving America’s food revolution.
My first event of the day upon arriving was a media lunch at SuperBite hosted by Washington State Wine with special guests Owen Roe, Dusted Valley and Finnriver Farm. SuperBite is the sophomore restaurant of chefs and owners Greg Denton and Gabrielle Quiñónez Denton who also owned the famed—and always booked—Ox.
Just recently, SuperBite garnered two 2016 awards from Eater PDX: editor’s choice for Restaurant Spin-off of the Year and reader’s choice for Best Restaurant of the Year.
Editor’s Choice Award: SuperBite
“Ox chef-owners Greg Denton and Gabrielle Quiñónez Denton gave Portland a restaurant truly dedicated to the flavor punch: amuse-bouche style “superbites” to dazzle the palate, with small plates and large platters of roasted meats to seal the deal. SuperBite takes this award for its creativity: Those Spaghettios are no gimmick, with fresh truffle and house-made pasta. SuperBite also gets top marks for its cocktails, service, and atmosphere.”
And the awards are well deserved.
Over the multi-hour meal, we sampled 15 different small plate and larger entree offerings that showcased everything from molecular gastronomy to unheard of pairings of sweet, savory and umami. As Eater PDX rightly determined, SuperBite has made its mark—and it’s delicious! Be sure to put it on your must-eat list in Portland and look for some of these phenomenal bites.
