PDX Dining & Drinking Input & Question

  • 3
  • Share

Greetings all...a lot of great information here.

We are doing a PDX/wine trip in late Oct/early Nov. I have made reservations for the following:

PDX Dinners: St. Jack/Little Bird
PDX Brunch: Beast

Willamette Dinners: Farm to Fork/maybe Thistle
Lunch: JORY

We plan to do Pok Pok based on what I have read. I really want to avoid over-hyped places...our focus is great food/drink and experience.

Any input is appreciated. There is not a budget, per se, since most of wine country will be wine and cheese rather than dining out. If I am erring with my choices, please steer me elsewhere.

We only have two days in PDX and 4-5 in wine areas split b/n Willamette and Eugene (King Estate).

One big question is Sunday and booze. I live in NC and we cannot sell alcohol pre-noon...what is the law in Oregon? We have an early res at Beast on Sunday but cannot fathom brunch sans wine (this may be a fact that deserves closer attention on another board but, for now, let's just focus on this issue).

Thank you so much.

  1. I'd do St. Jack and either Metrovino, Genoa, or Castagna.

    You'll be able to have wine at brunch at Beast.

      Metrovino, Genoa, or Castagna over Little Bird? I had considered Le Pigeon as well. I have been to Genoa before...thought it was wonderful. I had heard great things about Metrovino. From what I am reading, we need to go to Clyde Common or Teardrop pre/post (maybe both) dinner.

        Or even Clyde Common for both dinner and cocktails, both are quite good there. Sorry, I guess you didn't need another choice. ;o) Too much good stuff here, gotta stay a bit longer!
