Portland food Recs?

My good friend is heading on a belated honeymoon to Portland and she is a foodie. I told her I'd help her out and find some places? Anyone have some great food recs?

All give info on the top restaurants in Portland. Our favorite Screen Door in SE on Burnside. Always a line on weekends, easier during the week but get there early.

There are a lot of fantastic food options in Portland. Can you narrow things down at all? Do you know where your friend is staying and what transportation she has? Does she have any specific favorite foods/cuisines? Is she interested in beer, wine, cocktails/liquor, coffee, or tea?

I have two dear friends who have wonderful restaurants in Portland.
Chef Janis Martin owns and cooks at Tanuki, an Izakaya restaurant. If you like innovative Japanese food, you'll love it.
Chef Christian Russell owns and cooks at 9900. I haven't dined there yet, but I have had several occasions to enjoy his cooking and he NEVER disappoints.
