Most iconic place to eat in Portland

From Atlanta-I'm driving down from Seattle with my kids. We have never been to Portland and will only be there for the afternoon and spending one night. Where is the most "Portland" place for us to eat?

Jake's Famous Crawfish and the Ringside steakhouse are both iconic Portland eateries that have been around

for several generations. Very good food and great ambience at both of them.

Jake's was our target on our first visit 25 years ago. Was not impressed last time we were there, but "iconic" it is.

Yeah, Jake’s and Ringside have been around for decades, and would have to be considered “iconic”. Might put Huber’s in that group too. But iconic isn’t defined as best, so if you’re interested in a restaurant that better represents Portland’s recent rise in popularity as a food destination, you’ll want to go elsewhere.

When considering the emergence of farm to table "northwest cuisine," Higgins might be considered iconic.

Mostly just wanting something that after we leave we think "that felt like Portland" if that makes any sense... I will check out your suggestions, thanks!
