About the restaurant
Don’s Favorite Foods is a prix-fixe restaurant created by husband and wife team Chef Don Salamone and Kate Laurents in partnership with Sommelier Adam Galbraith.
We also offer cocktails courtesy of Jeffrey Morgenthaler and Benjamin "Banjo" Amberg.

Our Italian and French-influenced menu changes monthly and highlights dishes Don grew up with as well as those he mastered though his experiences working at Michelin-starred restaurants all over the country.

From Don: At Don’s, you may find gnocchi like my Ma used to make or Italian sausage modeled after my Godfather’s, Oreste “Ernie” Capone. You might also find scallops still in their shells, Oregon pork in the style of Braciole, and popovers I learned to make from my mother-in-law, Terry, because the Laurents family makes those every Christmas morning... beef tartare, sea urchin, caviar, etc too. These things are all my favorites.

We hope you’ll find some of your new (or old) favorites here too.

Burmese
Beaverton
About the restaurant
Burma (modernized name - Myanmar) is a Southeast Asian country about the size of Texas, tucked between India and China, is a home to various ethnic tribes, a melting pot of beautiful cultures. When it comes to taste-buds tingling cuisines, Burma has a lot to offer. It has been a passionate dream for Burma-born owners Kalvin and Poe to open a Burmese restaurant to be able to share their culinary culture. That dream came true in 2019 when Top Burmese opened as a virtual takeout only restaurant from a commissary kitchen in NW Portland. Due to its authenticity, made to order, home-style cooking, and Burmese hospitality, Top Burmese traditional and modern Burmese dishes became so popular effectively evangelizing the masses to become Burmese Food fans. Today Top Burmese serves its amazing dishes via various Burma themed restaurants. *** Top Burmese was named in Oregonian Best New Restaurants, Forbes, Willamette Week Top Eats, and various must eat lists including EATER Portland. ***

Cedar Mill
About the restaurant
The LaChona brand was born out of a love for sharing incredible wine with close friends and family. Ask any Argentinian what their favorite pastime is and they will likely say “asado con familia”, or grilling with the family. Slow-cooked lechon, fire-kissed chorizo, and hand-crafted empanadas born of generational influences and traditions are all paired with the perfect Malbec, Cabernet Franc, or Semillon every Sunday. This shared familial experience, this act of “pairing” family and fine dining, defines the essence of LaChona’s food and wine experience.

We love La Chona. The only complaint I would have is they often don’t have the menu items that are advertised or on their menu. Whether it be from running out or supply team issues. I’m not sure what the problem is. But of the four times I’ve been there I have had to pivot three of the four times. It will not stop us from coming to this restaurant. But it is disappointing when you’re looking forward to a specific item and they don’t have it due to either poor planning or supply issues. Especially on Father’s Day when we specifically chose this restaurant due to an advertisement for a specific item. They did take care of us. it just puts added stress on the staff. Which isn’t really fair.

The food is excellent, and the wine by the glass was also fantastic. One thing that would have helped the ambience is if the blender at the bar is moved to a different room so that the bartender isn't so loud.

This was our first time here for my partners birthday and will most definitely be going back! The food was delicious and the staff were super friendly and attentive. They came to our table and recommended the red room next door that has only been open a few months and it was really nice.
