Portland in August?

I'm planning a trip from NYC to Portland, most likely in August and probably the week before Labor Day. I suspect the weather will be great then, but my question is whether there is any kind of tradition of restaurants closing during any part of August for vacation--as they sometimes do in Europe (and even certain restaurants with European owners in New York). Would it be a good time to visit the city? Thoughts? Suggestions for other times of year, or must-try dining experiences? I really haven't even started doing any research yet, but some of the restaurants I've heard have good word of mouth include

Paley's Place
Clyde Common
Park Kitchen
Lovely Hula Hands
Pok Pok
Le Pigeon

and is Bread and Ink still a spot worth checking out? I remember eating there many years ago but don't know what it's like these days.
