I was just in Portland, where I had a nice dim sum in a Chinatown full of stripper clubs.
I was amused to see in the local alternative paper that the NYT has been talking up Portland as the next big dining experience. The alternative paper had a wonderful time of mocking Seattle as tired and passe as a result.
I have only eaten in Portland a few times and not in the Pearl or anywhere trendy. I like the idea of the microbrewies etc., but wonder since Portland is so much smaller if it can really compete with the Seattle restaurant scene.
What say you all? Portland or Seattle? Which is best?
