Weekend in Portland with a picky eater...

Asperges | Jul 5, 2012 04:00 PM

I'm spending a weekend in Portland, and need suggestions for two restaurants for dinner. Here are the criteria: 1) I'm traveling with my mom, an incredibly picky eater who gravitates towards bland basics like roast chicken and steak, though my palate likes things that are a little more adventurous, 2) we're staying in downtown Portland, near Pioneer Square, and won't have a car, so we need places that are easy to get to from that area by public transportation or taxi, 3) no seafood/sushi joints, 4) flexible on price - we're from NY/LA and so are kind of inured to spendy joints.

What restaurants meet those guidelines and serve creative, quality food that won't scare away a timid diner? Any help appreciated!
