Portland rec's for local food and wine
Posted 13 September 2008 - 12:21 PM
We'll definitely get to both the Thursday and Saturday farmer's market and Liner and Elson. Other ideas culled from various sources are:
Andina (not a wine place, but looks intriguing)
We'll stay downtown-ish somewhere between the river and Washington Park so a nearby breakfast spot with well-made coffee would be a plus. And we're from Chicago with many good Thai places, but maybe Pok Pok might not be necessary.
Feel free to steer me toward or away from choices given that criteria. I've already bookmarked extra MSG's website (thanks!). Thoughts?

Jim -- what was the great bread they served at Clark-Lewis? I seem to recall that their home bakery was near where we stayed uphill from the Pearl District, near the ballpark. Also, if you're still selling oil you would be doing Michael a favor by telling him how to get hold of some.
I'd recommend these, too....
Lovely Hula Hands
and try to get to the Portland Farmers Market if you're here on a Saturday.
I think the farmer's market is a must, as well.
Thinking about the government.

I usually open for sales at my "warehouse" a couple of hours every week, too.
