Help me narrow down restaurants for a 3 day visit!

ncr | Mar 10, 2013 04:53 PM

Staying in downtown Portland from a Wednesday night - Sunday morning this summer. Just husband and me, no car. Traveling from DC. We pretty much like any food, and budget is not a concern. Would prefer amazing food at casual places, rather than "fancy" or "fine dining" but one nicer dinner out of the 3 would be fine...I'm not a huge coffee drinker, but want to try a couple places like Stumptown or Barista.
Also don't like alcoholic drinks, but husband does enjoy wine, local beers, and martinis...so suggestions for a couple places would be appreciated.
Might be staying on "east coast" time, which means breakfast, lunch and dinner on the early side. Don't really want "the best pizza" or "best burger" but something that we can't get in DC.
SO!
3 breakfasts: Waffle Window, Pine St. Biscuits, Tasty and Sons???
3 lunches and dinners: Pok Pok, Le Pigeon, Castagna, Ox, Tanuki, Evoo??? or cut out one of the above for food carts....
of course heard about Blue Star donuts, Cacao chocolate drinks, Salt 'n Straw ice cream, and Ken's Artisan Bakery for snacks in between meals!
wish I could stay longer, but gotta work! Thank you for your suggestions -
