Group in Downtown Portland, separate checks
We're the program committee for a convention coming to Downtown Portland (Hilton Towers) in February. We'd like to set up some informal dinners for conference attendees to join in. Requirements: walking distance from Hilton Towers downtown. Ability and willingness to do separate checks since everyone will get reimbursed by their respective companies.

I think you may need to contact a few places, separate checks for a large group is very hard on the servers.
I don't know downtown that well, but you are near Mucca, authentic Italian, Departure/Urban Farmer, The Original, Kenny and Zukes may be a bit of a walk, and you are down the block from the food carts....
