Help with Portland and Willamette Valley stops.

I will be heading out to Portland for 4 nights on June 2nd. I am going with 4 other people very interested in good food. I have found such a HUGE array of restuarants that it boggles the mind. I knew Portland was a foodie town but was honestly quite shocked to see just how many places are seemingly producing such great food.
We have on the list: Pok Pok, Toro Bravo, Sel Gris, Le Pigeon, Wildwood, Paley's Place, Carlyle, possibly ten01, and bluehour (for lunch.) What should we just not miss?

Which is better Biwa or Tanuki?

We are also going to Willamette one day for wine tastings, another day to the coast to hike, and possibly returning one night to eat in Willamette.

Where would you recommend, Joel Palmer house or Tina's Dundee? Typically, how long a drive would it be to get to either of those places from downtown PDX? Is it worth driving out there to eat 2 nights out of 4 to hit those places or would you recommend staying in town? **One of us will have to drive out there and we all like our wine!**

I have tried to do my homework on the topic and have obsessed over it for a few days. Any help would be appreciated.
