Dinner Near Mississippi Studios
I have just moved to Oregon and am coming into town to see the Band of Heathens (a band I've seen a couple of times in Austin) at Mississippi Studios in early April. What recommendations do Hounds have for restaurants in the area. Nothing too fancy, as we are going to be rock and rolling shortly thereafter, but we do like fresh, flavorful and local. Thanks...
Liberty Glass on Mississippi is a gem....the drinks are cheap, the food is good (albeit simple - mac n' cheese, meat loaf, etc.), and the atmosphere is quintessentially 'Portland' (it's in a little pink house, they do bingo on Mondays...). The only problem is then don't take reservations, so you may want to avoid if you're a big group. The Mississippi pizza pub (above average pizza joint + live music) is another option. I love Proust, which was recommended by another poster, but their food menu in limited. You can bring food from the carts onto their patio (not sure about inside), but depending on the time/day you may find some carts closed.
