Guidebook for Portland

Food Scene
High-end Peruvian restaurant with adventurous chef and top-notch drinks (including the best Pisco Sour in the Northwest.) The consensus best restaurant around (in walking distance). Wise to make reservations, but you can often eat in the bar without.

Incredibly delicious food in an unpretentious setting, great value. Looks like a lunch spot but they have great full entrees. If Slow-roasted beef brisket or lamb shank drizzled with porcini sauce over polenta cooked perfectly by a gourmet chef for $12 sounds good to you, don't miss this place. Highly recommended. And everything else on the menu is cheaper. Open 11 am to 8pm Th-Sat, 6pm M-Wed

Parks & Nature
Stunning view of the city and a world class rose test garden. If you like roses, this is the place for you (especially in June, when they're blooming and Portland -- the Rose City -- has its Rose Festival. Little kids will love a ride on the retro mini-train which takes you right to the zoo.

This park covers essentially the entire hill above our house for 20 MILES, from the zoo all the way north. Wildwood Trail and Leif Erickson Drive (an abandoned road) offer long, unpaved running/hiking trails closed off to cars.

Shopping
23rd Avenue is a street full of fancy shops in old converted houses, maybe something like a combination of Union Street and Chestnut Street in San Francisco. Some good restaurants mixed in too, from the hyper-trendy ice cream shop Salt and Straw to Kornblatt's Deli and Boxer Ramen. Literally two blocks away from here.

Getting Around
The station I want to list is actually at NW 21st and Glisan, one block from here, but BikeTown stations are all over town. Check out a bike here, check it in anywhere else so you don't have to worry about it getting stolen. They don't have helmets but we have two you can borrow.

The nearest light rail stop, on the Red Line. Takes you to the airport via downtown or the Zoo or out to Intel in Hillsboro, your choice. It's a great way to go to the airport, especially in snow or ice, only $2.50. Stops at midnight though.
