Chefs Daniel Mondok of the temporarily shuttered Sel Gris and Andy Ricker (Pok Pok, Ping) are teaming with Kurt Huffman of ChefStable to open Foster Burger in the former home of Cava at 53rd and SE Foster this January.
The menu will be simple and inexpensive with good beef, hand cut fries, salads, milk shakes, and a full bar. The 48 seat dining room will add another 50 seats outdoor on the smoking patio to be open year-round. Huffman's ChefStable is also partners in the forthcoming Gruner, the first Chris Israel restaurant to open in Portland in 15 years. Gruner debuts in December.
