My parents and I are going to be in Oregon in a few weeks. We'll be in The Dalles most of the time, but plan to spend a day or so in Portland. I have a few recommendation requests:
1) What is a good place to go for lunch? We're probably going to be in town for a day and shop at Pioneer Place and Lloyd Center. What is a good place near either of those that my 80 year old grandmother would enjoy? I was thinking of Mother's Bistro.
2) We'll later spend about a day in Portland. What's a good place for lunch and/or a snack near Powell's? Also, what's a good place for dinner - preferably something accessible by MAX and that's neither super-cheap nor super-expensive.
