One night in Portland, where to eat seafood?

If the train is on time, I'lll arrive at Portland Union Station at about 6PM on Sunday, and I'll be leaving at noon on Monday. I'll be staying at the Residence Inn Portland Downtown/RiverPlace and I usually dress in jeans and flannel shirts

Suggestions would be appreciated

  1. Flannel is the unofficial uniform of the Portland will be welcomed with a secret handshake, your own fixed gear bicycle and a coupon for a tattoo....

    in all seriousness, do not be afraid to go anywhere in PDX dressed like that, as long as it is clean and not like you just worked 15 hours felling timber. lol

    some more info on price point you are looking for and cusine would be helpful in suggesting restaurants to you.

    1. Fin has it for seafood...they are open till Feb 14th, Tanuki is a bit out of the way, or Bamboo Sushi, Eat Oyster Bar if you are willing to head to the east side

        errr, Tanuki is 16 blocks from union station. every other place you stated is at least two to three times further away. Fwiw, I highly recommend all of your suggestions except for Bamboo. Bamboo is simply over priced/hyped for being sustainable sushi, while delivering very pedestrian fare.

          I haven't been to Bamboo in a while, I thought the fish was good, but the service sucked...My favorite sushi bar is Kurata in Lake Oswego, out of the way!

      2. I realize I'm a bit late replying, but I can't believe no one mentioned Jake's Famous Crawfish, which is essentially between Union Station and River Place on the Streetcar route, near Powell's and a bunch of other great destinations, as well as located in a bustling area of downtown activity.

          no one mentioned it because it isn't worth mentioning.

              Jake's has interesting ambiance, but aside from that, its nothing more than the Portland outpost of the national McCormick's chain. Same menu they serve in DC, Chicago, and LA. and countless others. This is clearly not what the OP had in mind.
