Megavore's Guide to Portland

Hm, you've made the same post I intended on making. I'm pretty well set in regards to breweries and bars but restaurants elude me. I'm happy to say that my hotel is pretty damn near the pod at 9th and Alder, so I'll hit that. But is there any other cuisine that is a must in Portland? I'll admit to being fairly biased living in NY but I'll still game for anything.

I had a bad incident where the food start insulting the color top my date was wearing. Very awful. I prefer my food much better behaved. =D

Are there any restaurants you'd recommend near this Temple Bar? Again, no uppity or illmannered food.

I've searched the boards but am looking for a little more of a refined search. It'll be this Sunday, around 7. I thank you all for your suggestions of Rye House for the last inquiry but it was a bit loud for my tastes. Damn good food and drinks though. Maybe not a first date spot, so that's that.

Now, specifics: she appreciates a good martini, I like good beer. Food that is detrimental to conversation but still tasty. you know, maybe not too spicy or garlicky. Not too upscale. If it's not too hot I'll be in jeans and a shirt without silly words on it. Location? Flatiron and south. I can get there on a subway and so can she.

thanks for any help ahead of time!

First date spot in Union Square?

Yes, pork and Cava. Few combinations aren't improved by the addition of pork.

Now that place looks nice, except for the lack of a working website. Sorry, born and raised in the information age, I like internet proof.

Vintage Irving looked interesting but couldn't find a reservation for the time I was looking. But I'll keep trying, mucho thanks.

Howdy folks, long time browser, first time poster. But I find myself with a reason to ask my own question now.

I find myself need a place to meet someone for a date this Sunday, the 7th. I can't do dairy, she can't do soy but aside from that, there isn't any other dietary restrictions. Good drinks would be very nice, food as well. Some place that doesn't frown on (hopefully) long conversations. I am old fashioned and will do my best to pay so somewhere around $100 overall?

I thank you folks in advance for anything you can come up with, and hope I've mentioned everything relevant.
