Pick of da Crop- Which one do we choose?

idreamofrivers | Apr 4, 2007 08:37 AM

So I'm heading for a long weekend in Portland and as my man's not as into food as I am, I get to choose one great restaurant. I've done a fair amount of perusing so here's the list I've discovered. Please help me narrow it down.

You can tell me where to do lunch, what has the best vibe for cocktails, the most romantic, etc.

As for what I'm looking for, nothing extravagent ($200 a head just isn't the right vibe for now). I'm not looking for a tasting menu, just good, clean, well prepared food. I love local and fresh and adore seafood. My man enjoys his beer and neither of us want anything stuffy, pretentious or even that upscale, as the majority of the trip we'll be camping. Just a solid, delicous meal, a perenial favorite, a good spot...

What say you? Where shall we go?
