I'll be in PDX soon and want to take my sister out for a groovy dinner, good food, good atmosphere, not TOO expensive but a little is ok. Doug Fir seems to get a lot of attention. She's a 30-something coolio, I'm an almost 50 used-to-be-coolio. Is this place a good choice? Other recommendations?
Also, my parents like Vietnamese, and they always want to go to the same place on Sandy Blvd. I'd like to branch out ... suggestions?
