JUICY NEWS: Portland Fruit and Veggie World, Week of April 22

HIGH END BUILD-YOUR-OWN-SALAD PLACE COMING: The Oregonian reports that a high end salad bar called Waldorf & Cobb will be part of the re-build of popular downtown eatery Carafe Bistro. I bet it won’t  be as high end as Sweet Tomatoes is. That’s impossible!

HAPPY MEAL SEEDS: PDX Eater  reports that Burgerville is passing out seed packets in their Kids Meals until the end of May. The “Springtime Seeds Program” will teach kids about eating local, where food comes from, and sustainability. I envision landfills full of discarded seed packets, sprouting from the garbage. Nick, that is super negative, damn!

PORTLAND’S BEST RESTAURANTS: PDX Eater updated their site with a great interactive map showing the top 38 places to eat in Portland. A great resource when foraging the city, for old timers and visitors alike.

ROLL THE LINKS (some great reading here)!:
