business trip tomorrow by myself. staying in Downtown. where should I eat?

Eating solo at Cylde Common has always been pleasant for me. Gruner is also rock solid. Higgins is old school in the bar, in the best way. Ping down in Old Town is fun--good drinks and Asian street food style. Oven & Shaker for pizza and good cocktails. Riffle for killer seafood.

I'm going to be in portland for two days in may. Booked the paramount? Is that a good location downtown for food and bars? I will be stopping by the woodlands store. Mike do you still carry geier gloves?

Yes, that is a very central location. Close to art museum, waterfront area, "west end" (tanner goods/woodlands), pearl district, good restaurants/bars, etc. I would also suggest heading over to SE to check out some other neighborhoods if this will be your first time...

Yeah, first time. I'm going to Seattle for work and will come down to Portland on my own on the bus for a weekend. Need to eat some burgers and good american/mexican food I cant eat easily in the UK.

The 'Double Burger' at Lardo is very good. Also, check out Bolt Bus if you have not yet made bus reservations. It drops off and picks up like 2 blocks away from your hotel and is cheaper than Greyhound.

Does your family really like food? If so, you should hit D.O.C. It's pretty stellar.

Not for nothing, but have you been to the "old standbys?" Wildwood, Higgins', Paley's Place? They got their reputations for a reason, though I admit I've not eaten at any of those three in the last year...

Driving 1300 km to hang out in Portland for a few days with the lady and a couple of hounds. Staying at the Ace, plan to eat and drink a bit of beer. Have a short list of places but if anyone has a preferred brewery, place to take dumb fuzzball pooches or spend too much on  ladies clothes I'm all ears. I have a pretty good idea where I want to go but I'll take suggestions.

Yeah, read the last couple of pages. Hence the idea as to where I plan to go as far as food and the obvious leather goods/outdoorsy menswear thing. Outside of Francis May and Seamstofit not sure about the good ladies independents. Also wondering just how pet friendly this city is, seems to be lots of dogs but are there patios ect. they're more welcome? I'd rather not leave them tied to a post or locked in a hotel room. Outside our Deschutes and Old town is there a brewery that is particularly good?

Edit - I've been around since 2006, I get search, reading and not asking things in repeat. I know where to find salty pig and good breakfast, I will be into Tanner tomorrow. This is a slow moving thread and I was asking questions that may help with pets and the fairer sex. Not looking for anyone here to hold my hand all the way to some food cart, just don't belong to any lady forums.

Nice to meet you the other week Mike, although brief. Tanner Goods is a great store, Old town is a great brewer, Portland is a great city. That crazy old western wear store a few blocks from Voodoo doughnuts was like nothing I've ever seen before.
