Greetings, Portland Hounds! Once again we are sallying forth to sample more of your marvelous food and drink. I've shortlisted a few places for dinner and was hoping to get your thoughts.
Snagged a Monday slot at Ava Gene's to try the much-vaunted veggies, so we're looking for Friday, Saturday and Sunday night in particular and would prefer places that take reservations.
Though we've only scratched the surface, this isn't our first rodeo so we're eyeing a few less usual reccos this time.
St Jack's or Cocotte? (we've been to Little Bird twice and Le Pigeon)
Pazzo (underrated? interesting pastas) or Mucca ("best" risotto)?
Langbaan if we can get in?
Also considering revisits to Davenport and Ned Ludd.
The American Local? Ataula? Kachka?
For lunches so far we have Clyde Common (the burger), Baker and Spice (ham sandwich), Picnic if it's open for the season yet and Las Primas but I'm less concerned with midday. Frice is on the radar for pastries, Portland Roastery and the new Coava for coffee, Either/Or if we're out in Sellwood.
St Honore on SE Division for ciders, Hair of the Dog, Burnside, Coalition and Migration for brews. Maybe Box Social for happy hour.
Any feedback, yay or nay, on these or other ideas appreciated!
