This will be my first visit to the pacific NW and I'll be in Portland for just one night. Been reading the boards, the blogs, the reviewers and instead of narrowing it down to just a handful of places to pick from I've become paralyzed with all the wonderful choices. So, all knowing chowhounds, if you could have just one dinner, just the one, where would you go? Oh, and this one night is a Monday, so I'm guessing that will eliminate a couple of places right from the start.
Also, my SO loves cask conditioned beer so if you could recommend some places that we should check out before or after dinner, that'd be wicked awesome (yup we are coming in from Boston).
