My husband and I will be spending four days at a winery in the Willamette Valley (near Dallas) and another four at Hotel Fifty in Portland, in late June.
As neither of us have ever been to the Pacific Northwest, we're seeking recommendations about local restaurants of note. Hubby is a chef and I'm a devout foodie. We both have very adventurous palates and love to eat our way through a vacation; lunch and dinner (no fast food - not that I expect Chowhounders to go there).
We'll have a car, so travel is not an issue, but my research indicates that we may not need one to get to the best places.
