Good Eats Downtown Portland (near Hotel Monaco) and Weekday Breakfast
I'm in town for a conference at Hotel Monaco (SW Washington and 5th Ave) and am looking for a good place to grab lunch nearby. Also, we want to have a great breakfast on Monday morn before we leave and would love to hear some ideas!
Close, SS, it is confusing though, what with all those boutique hotels and restaurants in a few blocks.
The sister hotel to Monaco is the Hotel Vintage Plaza, not the Lucia. Monaco and VP are both Kimpton hotels.
Pazzo is indeed located in the Vintage Plaza, Typhoon (as well as Bo Restobar) is in the Lucia.
I agree with sauce. The restaurant attached to the Monaco is the Red Star. I have had breakfast, lunch, dinner and apps there. Not totally earthshaking but not bad.
Pazzo is across the street and I have had great meals there and some misses, but worth a try.
If you like Lebanese food, Karam Lebanese Cuisine, (316 SW Stark, one block north of SW Washington) is a great bet.
Excellent food, good service, and all the flatbread you desire. Here is a link to their multi-page lunch menu: http://www.karamrestaurant.com/lunchm...
