Greetings, all. We are heading back to your lovely ville in just over two weeks and I've got a rough plan to run by you for your feedback if it please you. We had such a wonderful time in March (see uberlong report here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/838708), really looking forward to returning and trying out some new places.
Kesone for nam khao and then a 40-block run up Sandy for salt-and-pepper squid at Thien Hong
Le Pigeon -- dinner booked already, nearly messed this one up!
Farmers' Market (the real one) where we may brave the Pine State line.
Wildwood for their burger
Aviary for dinner
Ned Ludd for brunch
Woodsman for dinner
Country Cat or Helser's for brunch
Tasty'n'Sons for happy hour burg
????? for dinner
Gruner for a burg at lunch, then back home
In between we are going to try and fit in Eastmoreland Market for the arancini, lots of coffee (Red E's???), Cascade for sours and Green Dragon, maybe Henry's to check out the taps, maybe the Spints happy hour, People's Pig to share a porchetta, Salt and Straw or Cool Moon for ice cream, and more :-).
If anyone has a happy hour that really stands out, I'm all ears.
