birthday brunch on 12/24 - Portland
I'm looking for someplace special to take a good friend for Sunday brunch the day before xmas - it's her birthday. I was going to take her to Le Pigeon but they're not doing brunch on 12/24. Doesn't have to be fancy, just excellent food. And there should be a few vegetarian options. Help! Anyplace in Portland, not Beaverton please.
I've been eating brunch/breakfast a lot lately always at a different restaurant. I agree. No better place for brunch. Each item is executed nearly flawlessly and there's always lots of interesting dishes.
Lately, brunches have gotten busy later, I think. I wouldn't trust after 12. People are shopping, they have family in town, things are going later. However, I went to Simpatica just a week ago and was there at like 10:30 and only had one group ahead of us. By the time we were seated, there was quite a line.
I wish they had tables for two. It would move things through faster.
