H5O Bistro & Bar ((503) 484-1415. B-L-D daily; $$. Free valet parking for 2 hrs.). Many diners never get farther than the bar in front, which has a happy hour from 4:30 to 7 p.m. and all day on Sunday, but those who enter the spacious open dining room get a view of the river across the street. The menu changes regularly, and the lunch menu might include a large wedge butter lettuce salad with pickled beets, bruchetta topped with sardines and sweet peppers, a tangy bowl of smooth tomato-basil soup, or a juicy house burger. Cocktails, local wines, draft beers, and sakes are available.
