The Ultimate Portland (OR) Shopping Thread - Page 30

post #436 of 477
Was just in town for a quick family visit... Ate at Kachka again, and it remains great. Went early, and the place was empty with no wait. Gabe is back in the kitchen at Little Bird, and our dinner there was great too. Hung out with Marco from Bastas and I'm excited to eat at his new place, Cibo, when I'm back for the holidays. Also hit Navarre for the first time in maybe 10 years; again, remains really good. The new bar next door, Angel Face, is hit or miss, but it's a beautiful room. I love the Espresso Martini at Pepe Le Moko (though the whole place is a bit ridiculous, esp for Portland). Ate at Lardo for the first time. It was just OK.

As far as retail goes, I wandered into this new-ish (to me at least) place called Alder + Co (I think) that had some interesting stuff... definitely a ladies shop, but with some cool small trinkets, and my GF picked up a pair of Kapital patchwork pants on sale for $80.

What's up dude!

I love Alder + Co. Nice picks and a little apart from the crowd in terms of their buy (but yeah, all ladies).

Should have added: Go eat at Luce. It's so good. The pastas are amazing and the simple brodo soup is stellar. Wine list is esoteric for sure, but full of great stuff. Angel Face is for drinks--super strong POV there.

And that's a good tip on Kachka. I still haven't been...mostly due to long waits and poor planning.

Hey!

Yeah, Luce is on the list. Portland's a tough town for me food-wise... I want to visit all my old pal's and their places, but there is SO MUCH new stuff opening all the time, and I want to eat at those places too. Oh well, good problem to have I suppose. And make sure to get to Kachka... starting at 4 they apparently have some happy hour thing, but we just went all-in and got the "Ruski Zakuski Experience." 12ish dishes, all cold, all great. Pickles, fishy things, meaty things, eggy things, etc. Had the server pair vodkas with each course. Fun, delicious, and not crazy expensive.

I've heard nothing but raves about Coquine as well. Next time...

Lardo fucking sucks!!!! Don't go there. Do go to Carte Blanche. Idk what else is going on in pdx, I moved away in July. Renard (in the old St Jack space) was showing promise when I left, though.

post #440 of 477

Lardo does suck. I have never heard a positive review. Recently went to Sube Sushi and liked it.

Thanks for the rec's. I'm working on our eating itinerary as we speak. Will report back if I find anything new of note. Thanks!

Lots of food to eat that's for sure. Eater PDX is pretty legit for that stuff.

I'm not up to date on the retail tip these days...but I don't think there's too much new and breaking. Please, PDX SFers correct me if I am wrong.

Seems like mens retail in pdx is pretty stale at the moment. Its down to tanner, frances may, and machus for sf approved. Unless im missing something?

Why Why does this come up when I'm not in Seattle. Been there so many times and have never been able to get one.

Do they expire? If not I would like one for my next Seattle trip.

post #448 of 477

Tasty and Alder was my best meal in Portland a few weekd back. I didn't do fine dining this go around and missed the bone marrow chowder at Ox.
post #450 of 477

Yeah I arrived at the sale 15 minutes before it opened and was in a line half way around the block. 

 

I've yet to try Ox yet, is it worth going?
