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.
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...
