Holiday lunch in downtown with Mom

I'm visiting my Folks in Oregon over Christmas and will be taking my mom out for a nice lunch in downtown Portland.

What might be some great choices for the two of us?

No dietary restrictions. Also, I'd probably rate "nice" as higher priority than value... not that it would go unappreciated.

Thanks Portland experts!

Noteworthy boulangerie in 3rd or 4th?

Pain de Sucre might stand out as the best.
Poîlane, mostly for their miche.
Gérard Mulot, for the chocolate tarte and I like their chocolate almond croissant.
Sacha Finkelsztajn for jewish-style pastries and desserts.
Au Levain Du Marais has good croissants.

Not exhaustive, but the neighborhood is a little short on standout croissants I think.

A Parisian restaurant open on Sunday night for a special anniversary

Pierre Gagnaire's website says the restaurant is closed on Sundays. Is this to keep tables free for Chowhound users or am I otherwise confused?
