Family, Friends, and Food – Verde Cocina Does it All

By Ross Seligman, May 30, 2020

Verde Cocina is committed to those three things above all else. Chef Noé and his wife Anna met while working in a restaurant in Monterey Bay, California. Through luck and impeccable timing they were able to open their first restaurant in Portland in 2009. In the midst of one of the worst recessions in generations, their commitment to healthy, delicious food made their restaurant a success.

They continue to feature the best that the Pacific Northwest has to offer as well as having options for everyone to enjoy. Whether you are looking for Paleo, vegan, or just great Mexican food, you will find something delicious at Verde Cocina. Their committment to their fresh and healthy way of cooking inspired them to embrace a grammatically incorrect name. Usually, it would be Cocina Verde, but with “Verde” first, people can’t help but think of the fresh food they will find every time they go eat there.

Be sure to support this independent restaurant during Covid. You can order take out here.

Ross Seligman

Principal Broker

Ross Seligman moved to Portland in 1999 after accidentally discovering this oasis of a city in a nationwide desert of strip malls and sprawl. Ross likes to call Portland the "land of opportunity." Why, you ask? Where else can you be a successful real estate broker while simultaneously leading a double life as a musician? That would definitely be a bizarre combination in New Jersey but, in Portland, quite ordinary. In Portland, one expects that their straight-laced accountant is secretly oil painting between Yoga classes. From the moment he arrived in Portland, Ross quickly fell in love with the vibrant energy of the people, gorgeous homes and neighborhoods, and exploding arts scene. Deciding to embrace it all, Ross became an active real estate broker and quickly immersed himself in the city culture. Working with premier Portland boutique company Living Room Realty, Ross is well known for his accessibility, integrity, professionalism, knowledge of the market, and passion for Portland. When he is not busy representing clients or studying market trends, you can find Ross playing music around the city, hiking and camping in the unparalleled beauty of the Pacific NW, and spending as much time with friends and family as possible. Ross Seligman also appeared on Broadway at the Lyceum Theater in NYC as Janis Joplin's guitarist in "A Night With Janis Joplin".
