Portland's Restaurant, the eatery and wine bar in downtown Phoenix that was a mainstay for more than a decade, closed its doors for good on Thursday, February 20.
But there's good news for fans of the restaurant and its food and drinks. The owners already are working on a project called Oven + Vine. The new restaurant will be located at 14 West Vernon Avenue in midtown.
According to a post on the restaurant's Facebook page, the new location already is under construction. You'll find Oven + Vine in a building west of Shine Coffee, where the coffeehouse's "Living Room" lounge also is housed.
The Facebook post goes on to say, "Our new venture, Oven + Vine will allow us to continue to offer high-quality food, great wine, [and] craft beers, but in a more casual cozy environment."
You can look for updates on the Oven + Vine website and Instagram account, @ovenandvine.
