My GF and I are coming down from Vancouver, BC for a mini-vacation on Valentines day. We are staying in the Governor Hotel 614 SW 11th Ave. We will probably get into PDX around 6 or so. Where should we go eat?
We had an awesome week long food binge in Portland in the summer. We loved Toro Bravo and would like to go back, but we will probably leave it to the following night as we are assuming Valentines day will be packed there and it's kind of a trek. Stumbling distance is better. So, where should we go? We loved Clyde Common, Le Pigeon, Beaker and Flask, Podnah's Pit, and a ton of other places. But i'm thinking Valentines day will be a problem and we don't really know what time we are getting in so reservations aren't ideal. We like a place we can linger and drink longer in, or a place that is near somewhere where that is possible (like Clyde Common). It can range from fancy to funky, as long as it's really good and we shouldn't have a problem getting in on Valentines without a reasonable wait.
