We will be in Portland in August for one night at the beginning of a trip and a second night at the end of our trip, a week later. We are staying at The Nines both nights and would like some restaurant recommendations for lunch and dinner.
One night we would like to go upscale; lunches and the other night can be whatever--bistros, cafes, romantic spots, bars.
Prefer American, French, Italian, Spanish/Tapas, Mexican, seafood, steakhouse.
Any help is appreciated!
