Belated shoutout to Portland Restaurants

I should have done this a long time ago, but I took an amazing trip to Portland, Oregon this past August where I had some of the best meals I can remember.  Super fresh, organic, farm to table without being kitschy - the food in Portland was seriously THE BEST.

Le Pigeon
Clyde Common
Tasty n Sons
  1. Le Pigeon - Best French meal I have ever had.  Seriously.  Foie Gras profiteroles?  Need I say more?
  2. Tasty n Sons - This place had an hour long wait for "brunch" at 11am on a Wednesday afternoon.  Need I say more?  And it was worth the wait.  A tapas style brunch menu - super reasonably priced.  Finally one can do savory and sweet!
  3. Bijou Cafe - Amazing french style omelets. Fluffy, perfectly soft.  Better than the ones I had in Paris.  Seriously.
  4. Clyde Common - While located in the urber hipster Ace Hotel, the service and food were welcoming and warm.  Had a delicious light crab and lemon pasta.
  5. Brunch Box - One of the food trucks - breakfast sandwiches served on buttered texas toast.  Need I say more? Trial by Fire is my boyfriends favorite sandwich of all time. 
  6. Random Order - Delicious Pies, especially the Vanilla Salted Caramel Apple...

Other obvious notables - Stumptown coffee (love the bottled cold brew), Vodooo Doughnut (maple bacon bar)
Voodoo Doughnuts

Also want to note - The Allison Inn & Spa in the Willamette Valley was amazing.  Go there.
