Hi everyone - I just scored myself a last minute invite to the pre-opening VIP night at Lucier, a new restaurant opening in the "south waterfront/north macadam" area so have made the late decision to come down to Portland for the weekend and focus my time on food!
I spent the majority of my adult life in Portland but have lived in Seattle the past couple of years. When I've come back for visits, it's been family focused and don't get a chance to eat out much. So.... I'd love to take this opportunity to check out a few of Portland's _newest_ good eats. I've quickly explored the board but am mostly seeing restaurants I'm familiar with.
Can anyone give me their quick recs of restaurants _that have only been open about a year_? Must be open on the weekend, can be any price point and preferably not Asian cuisine, unless it's really brand new (I know Portland has a ton of great Asian restaurants but those are the ones I tend to visit most).
Thanks in advance - I'd do a bit more homework on the board but I'm heading out the door in short order! (In return, I'm happy to give my first impressions of Lucier... I don't know much abouit it, except that it seems to have a great location, the food is "modern European cuisine" and my favorite part: it offers a champagne cart ;)
