One Night in Portland- Have to impress PDX locals

sockster Sep 5, 2012 11:52 AM

Where should I take them to dinner? They are clients of mine and live and work in Portland...I'm a foodie from NYC and they love discovering new "local restaurants" through me....go figure.

So where should I take them??

    Ox would be my first pick right now...

      Paley just opened Imperial in the old Typhoon spot at the Lucia hotel.

      Nothing impresses portland foodies like a place they haven't heard of yet.

        Castagna...Matt Leightner opened Altera in NY to raves, and Castagna is his baby..they are continuing in his footsteps.

          We actually ended up at Ox- which was FANTASTIC!! Great drinks, incredible appies, amazing mains, and best of all were the sides...each and every one was delicious and super tasty. A must go to in Portland.

            I have had a couple of really stellar meals at Ox since they have opened. I need to get back there soon... So glad you enjoyed it and that it served your purpose!
