We also went to some amazing eateries: Watercourse Foods and Root Down. Watercourse is completely vegetarian, which my dad wasn't all about, but everyone else enjoyed. Super cool art by Ravi Zupa on the walls, very hipster staff. I had the Three Sisters Salad, all vegan, and it was delish. We all split their vegan carrot cake for dessert, and it was very good as well. Check it out if you can!
Root Down is not vegetarian or vegan exclusively, but it does rely on local and organic foods. A very "foodie" place to go. And one of the best experiences, our waiter truly made my birthday special. I had the veggie sliders and the Pepper Bloom cocktail. They have a mixologist on staff so you can custom order any drink. Mine was heavenly: vodka, St. Germain, grapefruit, basil, jalapeño, and lemon. You can be just like a Portlandia skit there! Very unique menu, a little pricey, but absolutely worth it. Some of the best food and customer service I've had in a long time. We will be back!
