I just posted my long Portland trip report from my August trip under the heading "Portland in August"--but one thing I forgot to ask is whether any local hounds have tried the restaurant D.O.C. I couldn't seem to find anything searching this board. A friend of mine told me that it was recently (I don't know how recently) opened by the woman who runs Beast (and Yakuza, which she says is also good, next-door to Beast); I know it's just a stone's throw away from there. My friend says it's extremely interesting Italian food and she's had great meals there. I didn't have a chance to get there and am wondering whether to put it on my list for a future visit. It's hard to find much info on it.
