Honeymoon dinner in PDX
My fiance and I are coming to Portland for our honeymoon next month (we'll be there from June 9th through the 16th). We'll be staying some in the SE at a little house we rented off of CL and some in the Hotel Deluxe, with an overnight trip to the wine country around McMinnville.
I am hoping for a consensus on where to eat our 'Big Meal' - a very memorable honeymoon in PDX type dinner. Please help me decide between Sel Gris, Le Pigeon, Carlyse, Paleys Place, Clark Lewis and ten01.
We want romantic, but hip. Good cocktails are a plus, but desserts won't do much to sway. For the record, we are already planning to do to Pok Pok, Toro Bravo, and Cafe Castagna.
And any other don't-miss suggestions are welcome, but we already have so many ideas from the boards. Looking forward to your opinions!
The best meals I've had lately we both prix fix-- I don't know if that bothers you; some like to pick their own entree. But check out the websites for Beast (30th and Killingsworth) and Simpatica (off E Burnside). Glad you're doing Toro Bravo and Pok Pok-- they're both favorites. If Castagna has the fideoes stuffed squid, get it-- it's on my list of top ten things I've put in my mouth.
Clyde Common is great too.
Also, I'm sure you were planning on it, staying at the Hotel Deluxe, but check out the Driftwood Room.
