Portland this weekend

equinoise | Sep 11, 2008 09:25 AM

My wife and I are heading down to P-town from Seattle tommorow night, Friday. We anticipate arriving around 9-9:30 and looking for dinner. On saturday we will have breakfast/brunch, possibly lunch, and dinner; timing is generally flexible. There is a small chance of an early dinner on Sunday as well.

So what to do? I haven't visited Portland since Summer 2006. My preliminary ideas were Apizza Scholls, Pok Pok, and Le Pigeon and/or Sel Gris. Would appreciate understanding how these might fit into the schedule I propose in light of timing, reservations and wait times, etc. Are these all accesible by public transit?

A consideration is cost--we are with people who aren't food fanatical and, as far as I know, Le Pigeon and Sel Gris would probably be the limits of high end for them. Am I overlooking more affordable and attractive options that are unique to Portland as opposed to Seattle?

We moved to Seattle from the NYC area and greatly miss NY style pizza. I read in a recent post debating Portland's best pies that Scholls is most representative of the NY style. Do you agree?

Thank you very much.
