In the 1950s and 60s, diners and supper clubs were social hubs, places we gathered to end our days or begin our nights. The menus were comprised of comfort foods brought to this country by the immigrants who shaped it, and were refined to satisfy contemporary tastes. The Original, the downtown destination for all-day Portlanddining, renews that spirit for the 21st century by serving up playful variations on the classic standards in an atmosphere that’s stylish, sophisticated and cool.
So, settle into a spacious booth for a comforting brunch or a brisk business lunch. Stretch out in our plush retro-luxe banquette for an elegant dinner. Unwind at our candle-lit bar for that much deserved post-prandial nightcap. At the Original, we honor the past as we listen in on the pulse of Portland’s adventurous and evolving tastes.

THE AFTER-BREAKFAST MORNING CONSTITUTIONAL
Optional (and weather dependent) but NOT mandatory to RSVP for this MeetUp is the After-Breakfast Morning Constitutional. (Constitutional: noun. A walk taken for one's health. Ex.: "She's gone out for her morning constitutional.") If you'd like to join me for an after-breakfast morning constitutional, wear comfortable shoes & bring a water bottle. Under 4 miles - no elevation. From The Original we will head to the Waterfront, cross Hawthorne Bridge & walk the Eastbank Esplanade to the Steel Bridge then back down the Waterfront to SW Oak returning to the starting point. A great way to kick off the week!
