Maya Lovelace of Mae Shows Us Her Neighborhood

This feature was produced in collaboration between Vox Creative and General Motors Company. Vox Media editorial staff was not involved in the creation or production of this content.

Maya Lovelace, the chef and owner of Mae, is an adventurous chef, cooking up Southern Appalachian food every night. And she's just as daring when eating and drinking out on the town. In this video, Lovelace walks us through a day of Portland's best-kept secrets: where to find the best espresso (Cup & Bar), pizza (Lovely's Fifty Fifty), and dumplings (Kachka). There may even be Russian strawberry-infused vodka involved.

This year, Lovelace is a winner of the 2016 class of Eater Young Guns — a program that awards the industry’s most promising up and comers. Follow in her footsteps and find Lovelace's top picks for food and drink in this map of Portland.
