Portland One Night

  • g

Will be in Portland for one night on SUNDAY of Memorial Day weekend with my brother who is from NYC and a foodie (Per Se, Babbo, etc). I'm from Seattle and also a foodie. We're looking for a special place...hip, not old & traditional, maybe with a bar scene, exceptional food and service, good wine...lively...you get the picture...yea we want it all the snobs that we are! Not interested in Ethnic unles French or Italian is considered ethnic. Any help is welcome.

  1. A couple of good places to eat along with seeing and being seen are Bluehour or Dougfir.

    If you feel the same way about your coffee as you do food, be sure to stop by a Stumptown.

    1. Sounds like you need to go to Clyde Common. Their menu changes on a weekly basis, but their website shows what a typical menu looks like. At the moment, I'm a big fan of their salt cod preparations as well as their whole fish.

          1. 2 more to consider...

            23 Hoyt and Fenouil. Both have amazing menus, food and service. I would also recommend Le Pigeon (amazing French food) but a lengthy wait without the bar scene. However Le Pigeon is down the street from Dougfir so you could eat and then hit the bar a block away.

              Le Pigeon takes reservations. They would be top on my list...

              Also might be a good idea to check on who is open that Sunday. Portland can be a sleepy town on Sundays muchless holiday weekends.
