Downtown Portland this weekend Looking for some good local chow
I am going to Portland this weekend for my kids ' irish dance regional championships. We will be dwntn at the embassy suites. Any ideas on local eateries would be great. I tend towards places that have stood the test of time. Not really looking for any modern day food artist chef. Please help. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, even dessert
Since you'll be at the Embassy Suites, I recommend Mother's Bistro. It's very close, and quite good. Basically, it's comfort food, so, there will be no surprises.
Also close by is Lorn & Dotties, a popular breakfast joint that I am partial to.
Forgot to mention, for dessert, head on over to Voodoo Doughnuts for a unique experience.
If you like Thai, E-San is excellent.
If you'd be interested in an Irish bar, Kell's is nearby.
If you live in the boondocks, and you like steak, Ruth's Chris is an option.
All of these are within four blocks of your hotel!
