What to Do

Crave - - TRAVEL -

Wake up with a stroll along the Wil­lamette River or per­haps morn­ing yoga. Break­fast is the most im­por­tant meal of the day, so put an egg on it at Tasty n Sons – if you can snag a ta­ble. Or pop by 180 Xur­ros & Xo­co­lata for an au­then­tic Span­ish pick-me-up be­fore swing­ing by Pine Street Mar­ket for lunch and Wiz Bang Bar’s soft-serve ice cream. If the weather’s nice, visit the Ja­panese Gar­den, con­sid­ered the most au­then­tic out­side of Ja­pan, with its new bon­sai ter­race and sand and stone gar­dens. Oth­er­wise, bury your nose in a book at Pow­ell’s City of Books down­town. Cy­cle north to the Al­berta Arts Dis­trict to shop for local arts, crafts and cloth­ing at in­de­pen­dent bou­tiques such as Antler, Tum­ble­weed and Frock. End the day with light, fla­vor­ful falafel and spicy lab­neh at new Is­raeli restau­rant Ray or watch each dish be­ing pre­pared from the chef ’s counter at Le Pi­geon where cour­ses like pi­geon heart fried rice and foie gras prof­iteroles will sur­prise and de­light. Af­ter­wards, have one last glass of cham­pagne at tiny Am­bon­nay.
