Take equal parts upscale watering hole and Pacific Northwest roots restaurant that's heavy on the seafood, and you'll get something like the Woodsman, an eatery that gives American standards a uniquely Portland twist. (Think pancetta-wrapped monkfish and ham-and-cheese fritters with jalapeno jam.) Plates of roasted chicken, crab claws, and artisan country ham share space on the menu with a beet salad with sheep's cheese and grapefruit that's worth a repeat visit. It's a cozily stylish place where customers wear flannel, an old-school tavern with outstanding cocktails (like the Hunting Vest, with charred cedar Campari, rye whiskey, and dry vermouth) a nd Pacific Coast oysters on the half shell. There's a small attached European-style market next door, as well as the original Stumptown coffee shop, the owner of which opened the Woodsman in 2012.
