Just a list of some of my favorite restaurants in Vancouver and Portland.
Hudson’s at the Heathman Lodge
Jerusalem Restaurant & Cafe
Very impressive artisan pizza and they bake veggies in the pizza over! They also serve concrete – no, not paving – it’s an East coast name for ‘decadent frozen custard blended with house-made desserts’. And they are right next door to…
Vancouver Pizza Company
Edgefield is a bit out of Portland, actually ( 2126 S.W. Halsey St., Troutdale, OR 97060). A great place – once a poor farm – with several buildings (11 of them) in which they house all kinds of great places to eat and drink. One of our favorites is the Jerry’s Ice House, a tribute to the Grateful Dead which always plays their music. They also have a distillery in-house as well as a few restaurants. The food is good; pub food, basically.
