What Portland does better than SF...

Candice | Sep 5, 2006 08:04 PM

Hi. I'll be heading up to Portland from SF this weekend, and I've been perusing the board and the tip sheet. I had already figured that regional, local cuisine, seafood, and beer/wine would be good bets, but it seems that it's also a brunch and doughnut town.

For my nice dinner, I'm considering Paley's Place, Park Kitchen, or Le Pigeon. I'm also going to try to hit the farmer's market on Saturday. For brunch, Simpatica, Le Pigeon, Roux, or___.

My question, is what else can I eat/drink that will make me think, "Yep, this is what Portland does way better than SF." Should I skip certain ethnic foods in lieu of what i get in SF? Also, favorite brewery or food related tours/factories are also of interest to me. I also like all things spicy. I'm staying at the Jupiter Hotel, thanks for any advice.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
