Hello Portland Chowhounds!
I first want to thank-you all for providing so much valuable information about the Portland food scene on this board. I am coming to Portland for a weekend (from Chicago) and am very excited to sample some of the culinary specialties that your city has to offer!
While in Portland, I would like to take my friend/host out to a nice lunch or dinner. I am looking for a restaurant that features local pacific/northwest cuisine and offers something that I wouldn't be able to find in Chicago. After reading some of the posts on this board, I was thinking of checking out either Wildwood or Ripe. Which would you recommend...of is there a different restaurant I should consider? I will be in Portland next weekend.
Thank-you very much for all your help!
