One Lunch in Portland - Where Should I Go?

I have one lunch in Portland and I don't want to squander it! Anywhere in the greater Portland area is a possibility - where should I go?

  1. Forgot to mention - I've been to Wildwood, Southpark, and Higgins in the last few years and really liked them all - I'd like to go somewhere different this time, but that kind of restaurant is definitely my speed.

      Davis Street Tavern
      Clyde Common

        A little different than the ones you mentioned, but I think some of the best food-

        Tanuki - maybe a little more adventurous, but I recommend the omakase. We put down $25 and had at least 12 courses - some of the best food I've had recently.

        Pok Pok - I'm never disappointed, never been to anywhere like it - not your typical Thai food found in the US

        Both have great, interesting food and are fun.

        1. Bunk Sandwiches would be my suggestion, but it's not in the same speed as the others you've mentioned.

          Ten01 and Park Kitchen would be right up your alley.

          1. I like Typhoon, Kenny & Zuke's & Fenouil.

            1. I had a good experience recently at Nel Centro in the Hotel Modera - on the edge of the downtown core. Outdoor seating potential if it's nice out. On 5th and Clay. It's brand new, and my colleagues and I were impressed.
