hi all! and LA boy here!
im going to portland in May. staying in downtown for the weekend.
i would like some suggestions on places to eat. i have no actual preferences as i enjoy all types.
the 2 suggestions I am looking for are:
1. a place thats well known to locals and is more of a local joint (not a fancy place). it can be a burger joint, or a hole in the wall. just want to try a place all the locals love.
2. a more classy place. steak or seafood (thinking seafood better since its a coastal town). or another ethnic place..(not sure if any particular ethnic group has a high presence in portland)

i will do some venturing on my own, but definitely want to try 2 places based on the rec's i recieve from this post. i will have no car, so hoping something close to downtown. but if the best rec' is for a place further away, i will make the effort to get there!

thanks all!
