I couldn't find anything by searching the board, so I hope you don't mind the question.
I'm planning a bachelor party for 20 guys and am looking for a good place to plan a dinner. The catch is that I've never been to Portland before, and neither has the groom. We're coming up from the Bay Area, and he chose the city because he loves craft beer and good food, but this is the blind leading the blind.
Since we have so many guys (we're in our 30s, professionals, like good food and drink--this is likely to be pretty sedate as bachelor parties go), I need to figure out a good place for a Saturday night dinner that can accommodate us. My guess is that with those numbers I'll need a place with a private room and will probably have to go for a set menu. Although I'm not the world's biggest fan of steakhouses, that would ultimately be fine, but I'd be thrilled with a more creative option.
Any other suggestions are more than welcome (breweries, etc.), but right now I'm mostly concerned about finding a good spot for dinner. The party is planned for mid-September.
Thanks to you all for your help!
