Are there more restaurants like Dick's Kitchen in Portland?

When I started eating Paleo, I began searching for any restaurants that are specifically aware of the Paleo diet and have a menu that caters to us. I couldn't really find anything in San Francisco (I was on a business trip there when I went fully Paleo), but lucky for me I did find Dick's Kitchen in my hometown of Portland, OR. The place it awesome, and it kind of helped me to embrace the Paleo diet in my earliest days of trying it out.

Have you found any other restaurants that are along the same lines anywhere else??

You guys have the best mini meatloafs. Liver, heart, homemade ketchup. YUM.

The Batalis....very rewarding experiences. People couldn't keep their hands off the thin sliced Salumi Mole sausage at Christmas and it was gone in about a minute. The bar area at the Eataly food court in NYC has a very tasty mixed sausage/meat/cheese tray.

I'm deeply enmeshed in the brew community here and am so thankful when events are at Bierkraft as it's nice to be able to ask for adjustments without anyone blinking - and its refreshing to have a spot where I can actually eat *and* drink if I want instead of the usual water and snacks from my tote. YAY!

hehe, that's so funny that Bierkraft would become a Paleo mecca. Definitely one of my favorite places when I lived there!

Oh, and the Deschutes brewery in the Pearl District has a gluten free menu. The elk burger is amazing.

Yeah, check out Laurelhurst Market.

Edit: Oh, I completely mis-parsed your question. I thought you were asking if there were other paleo friendly restaurants in Portland, not whether there were paleo restaurants elsewhere in the country. To answer that question for where I'm living now, Boston doesn't have any.

We have many restaurants in NYC that are meatcentric, organic, farm to table, etc. Blue Hill, Rouge Tomate, ABC Kitchen, Mas Farmhouse.. I'm missing like 37 places I really love that are easy and casual, super tasty. I think I'm hungry and have blocked them out. Oh! Even Mario Batali uses smoked meat that his dad cures in Seattle in his restaurant basement :)

Hey @Melissa I'm unable to leave a comment but Matt at Bierkraft is a Paleo CF'er and makes sure that there is a Paleo special each day, totally nice dude, he has gluten free cookies - almond!, too. I talked to them a few weeks ago and some other ciders will be slowly rolling in. Also they have kombucha and such. I'm there quite often and they'll take whatever sandwich and put it on greens - with a side of bacon wrapped meatloaf of course.

Bit of a late response, but I just opened a Paleo-focused food cart here in NE Portland. We called it Cultured Caveman, and we are 100% Gluten, Dairy, and Soy-free!

Check out menu and other deets here:

Dick opened another Dick's Kitchen on NW 21st street, only blocks from my place. At the grand opening I had an amazing wild boar burger.

I've heard Country Cat is good for Paleo food, but I can't personally confirm that.

There is a blog called meateats that is all about rating the paleo-ness of Portland restaurants.

Bizarrely, Bierkraft, a beer store (with tables to eat at) in Park Slope, Brooklyn, serves paleo "muffins" and things like that. The local crossfit club is often seen there. They also have gluten-free beer and cider.

You can also ask delets: I ask for a burger 'skinny', some know what it is and are happy to make them. Skinny burger is the same burger with lettuce leaves for a bun. I often have meetings at Denny's and order the omelet without cheese or potatoes. I have found they will plump up the omelet by putting in extra meat. So read the menu closely and ask how its made, you can turn many meals into Paleo or close to it by just asking it to be left off.

I found a bakery that does Paleo treats in Portland. It's called Tiffany's Pastelería www.tiffanyspasteleria.com

They have the most amazing paleo cake balls I've ever tasted! It is not a restauran , but if your looking for a place where you can order treats, this one I highly recommend!
