Sunday Brunch In Portland
Portland hounds, please suggest a great place for Sunday brunch. Thank you!
I have not been to Simpatica to compare, but Salty's on Marine drive overlooking the Columbia River has a very nice spread. Besides the brunch usuals, it's heavy on seafood options if that matters to you.
Be sure you get to Simpatica early - I've been there literally 3 times and have not been able to eat there (greater than 1 hour of wait). I'll get to try it one of these days...
I like the Screen Door on Burnside and 23rd quite a bit.
My idea of heaven is brunch at Kenny and Zuke's delicatessen (on Stark, just a block away from Powell's/Burnside.) Latkes, blintzes, 3-egg omelettes, challah french toast. Their brunch is served until 11:00 - and full menu/prices posted at their website.
P.S. For lunch - If you haven't tried Kenny and Zuke's Pastrami Reuben (pastrami prepared on site - unreal for flavor, just to die for - chosen as one of the 10 best sandwiches in America by Bon Apetit) then definitely give it a try when you're going out for lunch (and a visit to Powell's. ) I wish it were just a little less expensive, but at least I don't have to fly to New York City to have a good Reuben, so I figure I come out WAY ahead! And one sandwich is so big you can take home half and have it for dinner, so the cost per meal is halved, too.
