We went to Portland a couple years ago and ate a restaurant we really enjoyed, I'm trying to recommend it to my brother but I don't remember the name and can't seem to find it.
I believe it was Italian, I had squash raviolis. It's attached to a hotel, it's south of Burnside (I believe going south from Burnside it's on the Left) in a downtown looking area (it may be downtown, I don't know Portland that well). They have a wine room with a table in it you can reserve. It's upscale-ish. Any of this ringing any bells?
