Restaurants & Bars Metro Portland Dinner

Need dinner ideas

So here's the situation. We will be spending three days in your lovely city this coming weekend (Saturday through Tuesday). We have all of our meals decided except for Monday dinner. Obviously, this rules out places that are not open on Mondays (e.g. Roe). We are staying near the airport but have rental cars so anywhere around town, including downtown, will work. We are already going to two higher-end places, so we'd like a casual, mid-priced place for our third dinner (not necessarily "cheap eats"). One member of our party does not like spicy/exotic food, so that rules out the type of place where that's pretty much all they have on the menu(e.g. Pok Pok). Where would you send us for really great food that will "wow" us, that's not too "out there", and that's open on Mondays?

Our local contact has suggested Screen Door as a possibility. Comments?

(If you're curious, our higher-end dinners are at Noisette on Saturday and the Heathman on Sunday, and our breakfasts/brunches at Utopia Café on Sunday, Tin Shed Garden Café on Monday, and Tasty & Sons on Tuesday.)
