30) Simpatica, Portland, Ore.

Trivia question: what restaurant commands the longest wait time for a reservation in Portland? That would be Simpatica, a full-service catering company that’s only open for four-course dinners Friday and Saturday evenings and for Sunday brunch from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., reservations required. Committed to working with local farms and purveyors and showcasing the best of the Pacific Northwest, you can expect to find items like fried chicken and waffles with kumquat syrup, a frittata with greenmarket vegetables, brisket hash with sweet potatoes, butternut squash, and Brussels sprouts, and a bavette steak with crushed potatoes, sautéed kale, chili butter, saba, and a sunny side-up egg on the ever-changing menu.
