The first restaurant from Stumptown founder Duane Sorenson—whose brood now includes Ava Gene’s and Roman Candle—The Woodsman has always boasted a top-notch beverage program. The prototypical Portland restaurant, all Edison bulbs and reclaimed wood, the place practically begs for you to order a glass of whiskey. And while the list of brown spirits is worth a trip alone, the wine program remains one of the most concise and avant-garde in the city. The list skews French, but detours are encouraged, particularly if they lead to the “Italian Reds” section.
