Nostrana or DOC?

I agree with the general conclusion here -- Nostrana is probably the better choice. Though our recent meal at DOC was really memorable. I also recommend the pizza counter at Nostrana -- great view of the pizza oven and a chance to talk with the pizza chef (if he's not too busy).

Best brunch, cupcakes and lunch spots in Portland?

Accanto has a lovely breakfast/brunch -- we just tried it last week. Excellent polenta with galicky greens and also polenta hash. There was no line at about 10 on a Saturday morning.

Baker & Spice in Hillsdale (SW Capitol Highway) had them this weekend. They looked good, too.

What's your vote? - James Beard 2010 Portland Nominees

I'd vote for Gabriel Rucker from among the chefs on this list. I also think Matt Lightner is amazing. Also Jason French at Ned Ludd.
