I'll be making my annual trip to Portland soon (sadly, a shorter trip than I would like this year) and I have lots of ideas for places to visit or revisit. However, one evening I will be going to the Alberta Rose Theatre (to see Blue Giant). I haven't previously explored that area and so was wondering if you could point me at some good places for a pre show meal. I'm happy with most types of cuisine and, as long as it represents good value, price isn't too much of a concern. If possible somewhere where reservations wouldn't be required and where service is brisk.

While I'm in Portland, I'm hoping to revisit Laurelhurst Market which I enjoyed last time, and depending on time maybe Wildwood or Paley's Place and I'd like to try Broder (Scandinavian restaurant) - would breakfast, lunch or dinner be the best choice there?

In the UK, we are pretty spoilt for choice regarding Indian restaurants although I haven't come across so many in the US. I was wondering if anyone is putting an Indian twist on Pacific North West cuisine?

Finally, since I'll be staying near NW21st - there was a restaurant about to open when I was there last year named "Toast and Pho" - did it take off? how is it?

Thanks, as usual, for any help
