Guests of The Benson Hotel are lucky enough to have two of Portland’s finest dining options available to them at the property. This isn’t a little-known secret — the city’s own residents often make up a significant portion of the diners at any given time. This should say something about these restaurants, and it does.
The Benson’s Palm Court Restaurant and Lounge is located in the lobby of the Portland hotel and is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, a twice-nightly happy hour and live entertainment Wednesday through Saturday nights. Its impressive collection of wine is drawn from The Benson’s private cellar boasting more than 1,500 bottles. In addition to delectable appetizers and entrées, the ambiance of The Palm Court is a definite draw.
El Gaucho is one of Portland’s best steakhouses, and just so happens to be part of the luxury hotel. The restaurant offers a nice ambiance with an intimate lounge, live Latin music and candle-lit tables. Enjoy elegant, old-school tableside service and don’t miss out on the 28-day dry-aged certified Angus steak in the swanky dining room.
