A friend and I will be traveling up to Portland (from LA) for a weekend jaunt in a couple of weeks, and would love recommendations for current favorite restaurants in Portland.
We really eat anything - really! No real limits on price, although I would prefer entrees under $30. Have tentative reservations at Clarklewis, but after reading the board, am not sure whether we should keep them (although I haven't seen many terribly recent reviews)? Other places we're thinking of are Le Pigeon (is the wait on weekends horrendous?), the restauranta at the Heathman (a friend was recently there on business and raved about it), Wildwood, Fenouil... any opinions on those, or others, would be great, preferably in areas where we can grab a couple of drinks afterwards as well.
If it helps, we're staying downtown, but I gather that getting around the city is relatively easy. Also, we get in on the later side Friday night, so any good food options for a meal after 9pm would be really appreciated.
