Nel Centro


Begin your exploration of Portland's renowned food scene by visiting the hotel's own Nel Centro – by celebrated Portland chef and restaurateur, David Machado. Minutes from the performing arts scene, the classic dishes of Northern Italy and Southeast France meet David Machado's passion for culinary traditions and locally sourced, seasonal food.


Featuring clean architectural lines, Nel Centro's spacious, light-filled dining room is outfitted with Italian white marble, hand-blown glass lighting, floor-to-ceiling windows, plush leather booths and Douglas Fir tabletops. A welcoming bar and the city's best courtyard patio – complete with fire pits and a living wall – complement the restaurant and combined, make for a relaxed and distinctive space.

Nel Centro presents breakfast, lunch and dinner daily and brunch on Sundays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. is a must. Happy hour is hosted daily in the bar from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. For dining reservations, please call 503.484.1099 or book online.
