Travelling from SEA to Portland this weekend. Looking at a saturday and sunday lunch/brunch for 2-3 diners, and a saturday dinner for 4-6; What to do?
The following restaurants have drawn my interest in the past and their menus are currently very appealing...which is best right now? Have heard that Ten01 had a chef transition.
The price point at these seems very similar (entrees $25-32)--is there another Saturday dinner spot that would deliver equivalent or better food for less? On my last weekend visit to PDX we went to Toro Bravo, which I suspect can accomplish that. For the sake of value, then, I would not rule out substituting a non-NW/American place (read "ethnic") that is outstanding on a national level...like maybe Andina? A Lebanese joint?
For lunch, it seems a first-time visit to Pok Pok and either Scholls or Kenny & Zukes is de rigeur. Considering that we have other daytime activities planned is this goal feasible given wait times and seating logistics?
