For the random one night stay in Portland, I recommend Oba or Higgins. If you have more time, Portland is a great place for foodies so I have a huge list of recommendations which I'm not going to transcribe. All I do is eat out and try new restaurants.

In Seattle, Canlis is an excellent place for a special occasion.

In Hood River, I like the Big Horse Brew Pub.
