THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Holden's Bistro Restaurant Review

: Gentrification means a working garage can transform into a sleek shiny restaurant in a matter of months. The Pearl District is where this happens in Portland, with new and renovated buildings vying for attention. Holden's is a chic, sophisticated restaurant that fits right into the spirit of the neighborhood. The remodeled garage---the door slides open on fine days---is a casual café that transforms into a glamorous, candlelit bistro at night. Add eclectically hip background music as another layer of delight, plus cocktails that are inventive and daring (think Lavender Sidecar). Both match the fare that includes shrimp tacos, crab nachos and a first-rate burger. The most remarkable thing about the bounty here is the affordable prices. This is a likely place to start the evening before hopping off to some of the nearby hot-spots.
