We're two Chicago Chowhounds taking a vacation in portland! We love innovative, not too stuffy restaurants. Although we're willing to splurge for at least one night, we're a grad student and a non-profit worker, so more affordable options are great. One of us is a vegetarian, but we're interested in great restaurants with some veggie options as well as all vegetarian restaurants.
Any must visit restuarants? We're staying near downtown, and will be relying on public tranportation/maybe bikes.
