I will be in Portland this week and need to entertain clients. Can anyone recommend a few nice places near the convention center? Thanks.

Portland is pretty compact and cabs are cheap. Use Radio Cab. There are no white tablecloth restaurants per se in Portland but within a few miles of the convention centre are le Pigeon, Nostrana, Laurelhurst Market, Woodsman Tavern, Castagna, Beaker and Flask, Biwa, Pok Pok, and Bunk Sandwiches. If you need a sports bar Spirit of 77 right across the street is excellent. Across the river and still not more than a $10 cab ride away are Andina, Irving Street Kitchen, Clyde Common, Park Kitchen, Gruner, and Oven and Shaker. Have fun. There are also some great cocktail sin Portland.

Laurelhurst Market
It may have been Camelot for Jack and Jacqueline
But on the Che Guevara highway filling up with gasoline
Fidel Castro's brother spies a rich lady who's crying
Over luxury's dissapointment
So he walks over and he's trying
To sympathize with her, but thinks that he should warn her
That the Thirld World is just around the corner
