Small Plates, Great food for 8 people on a budget! SW/SE
I've never been to Portland and I'm hosting an 8 person happy hour/pre-dinner appetizer conference-related event this Saturday night. We will all be staying at the Marriott Waterfront (SW area).
I'm looking for a restaurant with small plates/good appetizers and I'm on a budget - about $250 total without drinks. I would love to have this event at a place that is representative of Portland dining, rather than your run of the mill bar food.
Thank you for your suggestions and I'm excited to have a great weekend in Portland!!
Wow, Saturday night decreases your choices, and this Sat. night might whittle down a list even more. Places I would call and check with:
Thirst Winebar & Bistro
Nel Centro (@ Hotel Modera)
LucLac Vietnamese Kitchen (not as close as the others)
Higgins Bar (don't know if they take reservations)
Places that are close and might have room, though not very "Portland:"
McCormick & Schmick's Harborside
Start calling NOW!! ;o)
