Saturday Lunch in Portland

vanillagorilla | Sep 1, 2009 10:42 AM

My wife and I are taking a weekend trip from Seattle to Portland and the Willamette Valley. I've got most of our meals planned, but am stuck trying to find somewhere to go Saturday for lunch. I was pretty bummed to see that my top two choices (Pok Pok and Nostrana) don't offer lunch on Saturday. To give you an idea of what else we're doing

Friday Night - Nel Centro (we're getting to town pretty late, and the restaurant is in our hotel)
Saturday Breakfast - Fleur De Lis (I may change this, but I want something light and open early because we're hitting Clear Creek Distillery at 9AM)
Saturday Dinner - Le Pigeon (our reservation is at 8PM)
Sunday Breakfast - Moody's Donuts
Sunday Lunch - Nick's Italian Cafe
Sunday Dinner - Hotel Oregon (McMenamins food is only ok, but it comes free with our room at the hotel)
Monday Breakfast - Hotel Oregon (Again, it's free)
Monday Lunch - We usually hit the Burgerville in Centralia on the way home

I'd like to have something for lunch Saturday that is pretty uniquely Portland, with out it being so heavy that it kills our dinner at Le Pigeon. Thing's I'm considering are The BrunchBox, Stanich's, and Ned Ludd. Does anyone have any other ideas?
