And speaking of new talents opening restaurants in Portland, just about a month ago I posted a blurb about the impending opening of Cava Tavern. Having their own place has been a dream that our friends, former Provvista provisioner Randy Montgomery and his wife, artist Amy Ruppel, have had for a long time, and it looks like it's going to come to fruition next Wednesday, Oct. 3.
I've heard nothing but raves about their menu, their wine list and the talent of their staff, so make plans to head out to 53rd and Foster and support these two terrific people. Check their blog for the official word. I hope to see you there!
Details: Cava Tavern, 5339 SE Foster at 53rd. Phone 503-206-8615.
