Woodlark hotel – Portland, USA

“The handsome bones of both buildings have been repointed and reinforced, right up to the metal mansard roofs, while the interiors shine with brass inlays, black lacquer and hand-blown glass lights, alongside grey timber floors, 10ft-long leather sofas, and steel and wood spiral staircases in the 20ft-high loft suites on the third story. This being Portland – a gastronomic hotbed par excellence – it’s no surprise that the kitchen, headed by Doug Adams, is in top form, sending out dishes like a smoked chicken paired with stacks of home-made tortillas, guacamole and green salsa, and dry-aged beef burgers cocooned in twice-cooked onions, butter pickles and mustard mayonnaise.”
