If you ever find yourself at the Fairmont again you might skip the tea service and hit the little patsserie on the street level. That place is to die for.
And the bar serves these little baked cheese lace things that sent me into overdrive.
Portland does have some great restaurants -- or so I hear. We typically stick to our neighborhood hole in the walls, which are fantastic, but aren't well known. One of my friends owns a couple of restaurants in Vancouver (WA.) and we make the drive up there once in a while though.
