There was so much to love about the Ace Hotel. A welcomed reprieve from run of the mill US hotel chains, where the dining options are lacklustre tourist traps to be avoided at all costs. Whilst Clyde Common is right off Ace's lobby, that's as hotel restaurant as this place gets.
Start your day with a hot breakfast, a hit list of staples right through to more decadent offerings to slam down with a coffee. Stop in for a quick snack, biscuits with housemade jam or pull up a spot at the bar and graze on snacks.
The communal tables are perfect to feast at lunch or dinner with a boisterous bunch. Make sure you make the most of Happy Hour from 3-6pm each day. Biscuits for brunch, burgers before basketball... we found ourselves heading back all hours of the day.
For travellers, locals and anyone who enjoys good food with good friends. Add it to your Portland list along with Ace's basement bar Pepe de Loko.
