Rucker's Little Bird Reveals Lofty, Lunchy Mission Statement

Gabriel Rucker and the Le Pigeon team's second restaurant, Little Bird, may still be far from opening on East Burnside, but the boys (including chef Erik Van Kley) seem to know exactly what they want. In addition to revealing that hours at the 49-seat Little Bird will span from noon to midnight (!!!) daily, the spot's liquor license app reveals general manager Andy Fortgang's passionate missive about the team's aspirations for the second space:

"Little Bird will be a casually-elegant high-end French restaurant that will welcome guests from noon until midnight daily. The focus of our business will be food, not beverages. ... Little Bird, with its relatively higher price point, will attract a well-heeled clientele to the area throughout the day and evening. We will provide a new place for lunch for workers in the many offices surrounding the restaurant, and will be a major draw to the area from diners throughout the Portland metropolitan area in the evening."

No pressure, Erik. No pressure.
