Hi, NW 'hounds.
Will be in Portland a week in July, and got the skinny on Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, Thai, and BBQ. Thanks for thoughtful, detailed posts.
BUT very little on seafood. We'd like to have at least one major fish dinner while in town, and even though it don't look good for salmon, there should be a ton of alternatives. We'll be staying mostly in Northwest, couple days downtown, and have wheels. Less interested in the exotic than the well-prepared. Price not a real obstacle, if you think the quality's there.
