96 hours in Portland: quick itinerary review

Windy | Aug 27, 2011 01:26 PM

I was in town last summer from San Francisco and managed to pack in a lot of great eats: Pok Pok, Tanuki, PSU farmer's market, Kenny and Zuke's, Cacao, Pambiche. This year, I'm bringing a friend, and we have 4 days.

Current list:
St Jack, Toro Bravo, Alder Pastry, Little Bird, Tabor, Nong's, maybe Clyde Common + PSU, Pok Pok or Whiskey Lounge, a cart pod or two, and a pastrami sandwich for the flight home.

Beast is closed that week. And the menu for Le Pigeon didn't do much for me.

Curious about Bent Brick, Otto, and Natural Selection.

Anything we should swap out or not miss?

We're staying downtown, game to walk or hop on MAX. Trying to eat healthy, so 4 days of charcuterie and donuts is out. Not looking for beer or pizza.

Pinot in the City is on. Anyone been to recommend one way or the other? My companion loves wine but doesn't drink much; how's the food?

Would like to find a cafe for people watching with great coffee or tea. Is there a juice bar or good spot for protein shakes open early downtown?

Also where can I buy foietella? Ideally somewhere we can taste it too. Was thinking Steve's Cheese (corrected: Cheese Bar) or Laurelhurst Market.

Thanks for all and any ideas.
