Never been to Portland. Done some research on existing threads and have come up with the restaurants below as options. Please vote for 3 places in each pool. Will eat anything. Don't care much about service or decor, just great food on the plate. Thank you to everybody in advance for your feedback.
Pool #1: Eventide, Blue Rooster, East Ender, Duck Fat, Miyake
Pool #2: Central Provisions, Fore st., Vinland, Piccolo, Lolita, Street & Co, Scales
