Palatable Portland: Clyde Common

The trendy Ace Hotel in Portland has a really yummy restaurant called Clyde Common.  The scene is totally hip(ster), but if you can get past the intense vintage mustaches and flannel - and if you can manage to get a server - the food's pretty rad.

It's classic new american (oxymoron, but you know what I'm sayin) fare - locally sourced ingredients, simply prepared in a way that showcases what went into the meal.  Think a deconstructed steak sandwich with roasted tomatoes and padron peppers.

Dessert was a highlight.  Peach shortcake done as a parfait - with panna cotta instead of yogurt (yummmm).
