I've had great luck with this board before, so thought I'd give you my challenge - any suggestions appreciated.
My family is coming to visit from Southern California. It's three generations, two of whom have never been to Portland. They don't like really fancy food or fancy restaurants, they're kind of cheap, but I would like to show them some of Portland's wonderful local and fresh bounty. So, local, cheap, not fancy, comfortable atmosphere, not intimidating, six people total...
I'm stuck! All of my favorite places to take visitors (Wildwood, Paley's Place, clarklewis, etc.) will be too expensive I fear.
