Portland: "foodie-est" neighborhood?

Absonot | Mar 13, 2008 05:24 PM

My boyfriend and I are planning a long weekend up there (we're in SF) this June, and we want to find a hotel that's in the best spot for getting the most out of the food, coffee, and beer scene.

So if there were a Ground Zero for the food and ingredients that typify Portland, where would it be? Our plan is to wake up, put on our walking shoes, and eat/drink our way around town all day. So I'm trying to avoid hotels that are surrounded by chains and other "safe" restaurants for tourists. I'd love to wake up, walk a few blocks for fabulous coffee, walk a few more for a great beer, walk a few more for excellent oysters…you get the idea.

I have this idea in my head that this perfect scenario is possible in Portland. Is it?

Thanks in advance, I'm REALLY looking forward to the trip!
