Seeking Guidance: Sunday Dinner Spot that Takes Reservations
Having moved to the area from Seattle, I've heard about Portland's great restaurant scene, but am struggling to locate a Sunday dinner spot that takes reservations. My dad is 90, so he can't stand waiting for long. He does, however really appreciate great food leaning more toward Mediterranean-type cuisine. Pestina for Paella and Olympic Provisions are right up his alley, but are these spots good for dinner or are they super-casual? Important things: Meal before food $30-35; Something a big more daring that Italian, but Asian and Indian are too extreme for him; we've already enjoyed Ringside and El Gaucho. Is Andina still great?
Thank you so much! It's so great to find folks who love food as much as I do!
Petisco is good, but it is very casual. I think they do a better job with their lunch offerings, but I have never gone on a paella night.
I wouldn't go outof my way for Petisco for dinner, but I would for Tabla. And the deal at Tabla (3 courses, $28) is fabulous...good wine list, cocktails, service...never had a bad meal there in years. Anthony Cafiero is an under-appreciated chef in this town, he's awesome.
