Dining around McMenamin's Kennedy School?

30th and Killingsworth has some good options like Cocette, DOC, Beast, Expatriate, and Autentica. Alberta Street from 30th to 15th is full of choices, especially vegan options.

Seeking fine-tuning advice for first Portland trip

I haven't been to Tasty n' Alder, but if they run things like Tasty n' Sons, they take your phone number and call you. Then you can at least walk around a little. Beats having to hang out by the door. Or just show up at 9 like cellophane_star recommends.

Ned Ludd - french toast! It is the best I've had at a restaurant by far.

Veritable Quandary has great atmosphere but I didn't feel their brunch food is anything special. Tasty n' Alder might be a good replacement.

Reporting back on trip number 6

Nice post.

I've only been to Roost once and it was for brunch. It was good, but not memorable. Maybe our expectations were too high, but I'd much rather go back to Accanto than Roost for instance. There are many breakfast spots in Portland to try before I go back.

north portland

That depends on where in North Portland you are talking about. There will be small area (generally confined to a single street) that are filled with activity, then others that aren't. There are also places in NoPo that do not have curb cuts. I discovered that while pushing my wife's wheelchair to the Mississippi Street Fair. A lot of houses in NoPo have steps as well.

You would want to live closer to the happening places like N Mississippi St, Alberta St, N. Williams/Vancouver, N. Denver Ave, and maybe N. Lombard area in St John's. The Pearl/downtown is much larger, with many more options. Also, the odds that streets/businesses are accessible is much higher. Being close to a good bus stop/max line can be almost as useful as actually living in the Pearl.

Root beer

I tried Lompoc's a few years ago. Steelhead is very good, and I'm told the spiced version would be great for a float, but it's only available from the brewery.

Root beer

I'm hosting a small get-together where I'll be serving root beer floats. I want these root beer floats to be exceptional. So my question is who makes the best root beer in Portland? And would it make for a fantastic root beer float? I'll even take recommendations on the ice cream. Thanks.

Almond flour or meal in Portland

I have only seen the almond meal at Trader Joe's. Maybe other stores carry flour. New Seasons Markets have an almond flour in the bulk section.

Brunches/Breakfasts Part 2: Clyde Common, Imperial, Screen Door, Country Cat, Spints Alehouse

I have recently went to both Ned Ludd and Spints Ale House for the French Toast per your review. Both were fantastic.

Spints was eerily quite though. There specials looks really good as well. It's definitively a place if you like a twist on breakfast foods.
