Since moving to Portland, one of the questions I get the most is what to do/ where to eat. (Ok, let's be honest: I find out someone's coming and I bombard them with food things. So what?) The trickiest part about this question is that I could really go on forever but lucky for you, I have a condensed version of my favorites over at Hither and Thither.
That being said, I'd love to start sharing more of my favorite spots here and thought I'd start with Luce. Luce is an adorable Italian restaurant with simple, wonderful food. Everything on the menu is reminiscent of what I ate in Italy and often makes me homesick for Florence. It's understated and elegant but comfortable enough to come in jeans for a celebratory dinner or a treat-yo-self take out and Netflix night. Did I mention the black and white tile and abundance of natural light?
