Hello, Portland Hounds. My husband and I are planning a trip to Portland in a few weeks (we used to go on an annual eating trip but haven't been back since 2012) for a weekend and would like to get some recs/tips based on what we have (tentatively) planned so far. This is the first time we will be leaving our toddler at home so are looking to make the most of the opportunity to eat out without her. :) We want to try all new places this time around, so we are skipping Paley's Place, Le Pigeon, Veritable Quandry, Beast, Clyde Common, and Toro Bravo (I can't remember other places we've been to, unfortunately).
Staying either at Hotel DeLuxe, Hotel Vintage, or the Inn at Northrup Station because we wanted to be close enough to walk to Providence Park for a Timbers game on Saturday. We'll be getting in on a Friday and leaving on a Sunday at around 3:00 pm.
For Friday dinner, we are considering the following: Roe, Castagna, Ataula, Ox... anything else we should consider?
For Saturday, we would like to stay in the NW/Nob Hill/Pearl District area so we can walk around and check out our fave art galleries and boutiques. Any suggestions for brunch/lunch? We plan to go to Andina for an early dinner/happy hour because it is walking distance to Providence Park and the hotel. Is there any other place near the hotel(s) and Providence Park that we should check out instead of Andina? St. Jack's, maybe (although that's a longer walk)?
For Sunday lunch/brunch, we are thinking either Tasty & Sons, Olympic Provisions, Tasty & Alder, and whatever else you think would be a great brunch place before heading out to the airport.
We're visiting from Sacramento (CA) and spend a ton of time in LA and SF, so excellent eats that are (more) uniquely Portland would be great.
Thanks so much!
