Greetings from Denver!
I am shopping for an anniversery gift certificate for my brother and his wife. They live in Woodburn, OR and don't get out to Portland much. I wanted to treat them to a nice dinner in Portland but not sure where to send them.
I've studied the NW board and most of the recommendations in the "nicer" category (Le Pigeon, Lucier, Sel Gris) tend to be a bit too "refined" for my brother. I'm looking for an independant restaurant (though he'd probably be happy at Applebee's!); high quality; great service; romantic. "En fin", something a little better than he's used to, without being totally alien.
