multnomah village's very own french quarter

If it’s been a while since you’ve had a day jaunt in Portland’s very own Multnomah Village, you will be pleasantly surprised as to how much the block cornering SW 35th Ave and Multnomah Blvd. has grown. The west side has been a bit slow to gain traction in P-Town’s food truck scene, but it is well worth the wait. I have watched the French Quarter evolve over the past few years, as my family often finds ourselves looking for somewhere quick and casual in the village while out on an evening walk. It started out with two food trucks, and now has a thriving indoor square that boasts unique offerings such as gourmet homemade confections, massage and an art gallery run by French Quarter’s owner and Multnomah’s own native Frenchman, Yves Le Meitour.

Start your morning at Peeple’s Baking with a delicious coffee and scratch made baked goods. Lunch and Dinner options include Bluebird Thai offers the best thai in the city, Taco Express – we love the Sope’s, The Wagon a super yummy and bit naughty vegan cart, and last but not least Yoshi’s Sushi – the former sous chef from Bamboo Sushi’s super fresh and amazing venture. Indulge yourself with an adult beverage from the highly popular Bird in Hand, where you can get a carefully selected microbrew or un verre de vin.

The French Quarter is also a wonderfully festive place to make an ordinary day extraordinary or celebrate Multnomah Village’s monthly First Friday where entertainment includes local bands, neighborly connections and delicious food and drink.
