2010 Feeding Frenzy in Portland

fenouil_cheesecakeAkiko and I fell in love with Portland after last year’s feeding frenzy, so it was time to return to hit old favorites and to discover new ones. 

A first stay at Hotel Fifty and a return to Hotel Lucia gave us four nights of downtown convenience, in walking range of places in the Pearl District, and just a hop over the river to the many great restaurants on the east side of the city. We also love the food carts and the farmers markets in Portland. The food scene remains vibrant, challenging us to again squeeze in as many meals as possible. (Sadly, Le Pigeon, Castagna, Apizza Scholls, and Toro Bravo remain on the to-do list.) We joined forces with our friends Henry and Lorna, visiting at the same time, as four can order more – enabling us increased ability to sample from the menus. Pictured is my favorite dish from the trip, but you’ll have to link to one of the following places to find the source of that treasure:

    Jay,
    Thanks for this post. We are new to the PNW and wanted to know where to eat in Portland.
    BTW, am I doing something wrong? I clicked on your link to Hotel Lucia and got a funny error message.

    Thanks, Christina. And you did nothing wrong, but something right, in notifying me and having me fix the link!

    Glad to hear you had some fine meals here in Portland! And the photos are always a plus.

    Incidentally, the link for “Autentica” above currently directs incorrectly to Whiffies Pies.
