the bf and I ( we live in SF and LA ) are Portland bound for a weekend in mid Feb.
due to the recent hype of the Portland food scene, we are bombed with suggestions of what to do and where to eat via Gourmet, Saveur, National Geographic Traveler and etc.
we wanted to cut the bs from the magazines and wanted to hear directly from locals.
if you are familiar with Nopa in SF - that's our favourite restaurant and i hope that helps narrow down suggestions.
we are non red meat eaters and would like something very Portland-ish and casual.
we are also very into bakeries and sweets.
