On the road again: Portland, day 3

I've come to understand that these reports give some people the impression that all I do on these trips is eat.  That couldn't be farther from the truth; almost all of what I do on these trips is work.  Given the nature of PT's work, however, I cannot discuss any of that, so I fall back on what I can reasonably talk about, which tends to be the only breaks in my day:  meals.

Today contained two such notable breaks. 

The first was a brief late-afternoon excursion to Salt & Straw to enjoy some of the very finest ice cream I've tasted anywhere.  Check out its Web site for descriptions and details, but take it from me:  If you live near Portland, you owe it to yourself to visit this shop, and if you don't, consider ordering some ice cream via their site.

Dinner was a lovely Italian meal at Nostrana, where Chef Cathy Whims, a five-time Beard nominee, and her team produce delicious, simple fare.  I tried a salad and some ravioli, and both were excellent.  I've never been there before, but if I get in the mood for Italian while out this way, I'll definitely go back to Nostrana. 

The rest of the very long day was work, lots and lots of work.
