Spring weather is starting to hit Portland, and after spending some time at the gym, we went for a late evening (for us) walk through the Pearl. I’ve heard many a wonderful thing about Via Delizia on NW Marshall and 11th, but I finally took the opportunity to sample their gelato (gelati?). I had a two scooper of creamy something and chocolate, and I’m proud to say I ate the entire thing (including cone) without any disasters. The gelato was excellent, and the staff lovely.
Also, both Tanner Creek Park (my favorite Pearl park) and Jameson Square were lovely after dark. While the Pearl neighborhood still feels a bit sterile to me, the warm spring evening was a great time to wander about.
