First visit to Portland

Visiting Portland for the first time. These are the suggestions that I have so far:

Ten 01
Park Kitchen
Clyde Common
Clark Lewis

Late night suggestion to Voodoo Donuts.
I would like to narrow list down to three dinner spots.

  1. I went there last weekend, but you should definitely check out Waffle Window and Pok Pok.

      I second Pok Pok--can't imagine missing that! And Biwa as well. And canales at Ken's. Hmm....looks like your list is getting longer, not shorter!

      1. re: giovannaz

        I will try to hit Pok Pok and Biwa when I'm on my own later in the week. So many places and so little time.

    2. From your list:

      TEN-01 and BEAST

      I'd add Toro Bravo if you are looking for a less expensive option but still excellent meal.

      1. Ten01, Beast and Clyde Common would be my top three out of that list.

          Ten01, Beast, and Clyde Common would be my suggestion as well.

          1. re: Nettie

            For various reason we are eating at Ten 01 on Saturday night and unfortunately Beast is closed on Sunday and Monday. I do see that they are open for Brunch, any comments? The other place we have decided on is Clyde Common.

            After further research we are now considering Toro Bravo, Le Pigeon or Sel Gris.

            1. re: sugarNspice

              I just went to Beast for brunch a few weeks ago--I thought it was great. We had four courses, I think--you're not going to want a heavy dinner that night. I think Clyde Common is open on Sunday, but my go-to place for Sundays now is Biwa.

              1. re: sugarNspice

                Toro Bravo should not be missed!! Sel Gris next followed by Le Pigeon.

          2. I've been to almost all of them and like them all... Paley's stands out, though. It is exemplary.
