Thursday Lunch in Portland

A friend and I are spending Wednesday and Thursday in Portland, returning home Thursday evening. We're looking forward to Wednesday dinner at Bresca. Any suggestions for our Thursday lunch? I'd like a place where we could relax for a while (particularly if it is raining), good food, nice atmosphere (and a view would be a plus). I'm considering Sonny's -- but would welcome any recommendations. Thank you.

  1. I was just in Portland over the weekend, and had a lovely lunch at Salt Exchange. The $12 lunch special (sandwich + 1 side or a combo of 3 sides) is a good deal. I had a spicy pork-belly BLT with a roasted pear salad on the side, nice glass of Pinot Grigio. Very low-key white tablecloth venue with nice artwork on the walls; you could ask for a table by the front windows for views across Commercial St. to the harbor.
