Deschutes Brewery & Public House. We spent the morning and afternoon touring Pittock Mansion & Washington Park and the International Rose Test Garden and skipped lunch, so by 4:30 we were very hungry. We decided to try one of the brew pubs. Deschutes is in The Pearl District and, as it turns out, is walkable from our hotel, but we didn't quite have a grasp of things yet, so we drove from the park, parked in a parking garage, and walked a block.
We had planned to head back out again after a quick hotel stop, back out to Powell's Books, but after being sick for a while, I opted to stay in the hotel room, close to a bathroom. SP was afraid to leave me alone, so we ended up hanging out, watching TV, and going to bed early, which was actually kind of nice since we were still messed up from the time zone change.
As for me, I will now be inquiring about shallot as well as garlic. I know when we use shallot at home, it's in small quantities and usually sauteed, and I'm fine. But apparently huge, uncooked chunks are bad.
As for Deschutes, I'd definitely go back, especially for that soft pretzel and beer cheese mustard dip. I'd just avoid anything with shallot (or garlic). The employees were all very nice and our server was fantastic and friendly, chatting with us about OR's lack of sales tax/higher state income tax (we were pleasantly surprised by the lack of sales tax on drinking/dining out). Plus I really liked the bright, open space and the fact that even though it's a huge space we didn't feel overwhelmed by space/the possibility of not being able to spot our server and even though it was busy and getting busier, it didn't feel crowded and we were not rushed out.
