Good food/drink destinations for foodies on a budget in Portland

You really hit it on the head with the Gilt Club. I checked out their website, and know we're gonna love it. The description of all their employees is f'in hilarious. Cheers!

Thanks for your feedback! We're all about keeping it real, and will follow suit with your recommendations. We want to get a good taste of Portland. We've been told by a former resident that it's like our little liberal town of Carrboro, NC...times a thousand. Cheers!

Thank you for your feedback! Will heed your recommendations as we venture into Portland. We are no strangers to public transit...so we'll see what we can do in relatively little time. Cheers!

Thank you for your feedback! Am definitely interested in the food cart scene in Portland since I've heard so much about it. Just tryin' to get the local vibe as much as possible and get a taste of Portland with all its offerings. Can't wait!

Hey there!

My beau and I will be spending 3 or 4 days in the Portland area in June, most likely staying in or close to downtown. We love ALL kinds of food, and have no dietary restrictions. We both work in restaurants (Bartender and Waiter), and thus also love good wine, beer, and innovative cocktails!
We don't like sterile, fine-dining atmospheres. We would like some suggestions on where to go for good, solid food/drinks in a cool/casual and/or eclectic/funky atmosphere, where we won't drop a ton of money. We always sit at the bar 'cause we're laid back people. We like to try a variety of things, so shareable small plates/tapas are always very enjoyable for us.
There are so many restaurants and bars in the area that I've reviewed, and I'm getting dizzy! Live music and cool patio hangouts are also a plus!
We are in our early 30's and would love to hear some feedback from you fun-loving locals.
Thank you for your help!

Brooke
