With this afternoon's disheartening news that Fin will shutter after a final Valentine's Day service, both chef Trent Pierce and owner Joan Dumas have released statements confirming the closure.

According to Dumas, who's closing the restaurant after seven months for "personal health and relocation needs," Fin will shutter for good on February 15, with Sel Gris alum Patrick Schultz guest-starring in the kitchen until then.

As for Pierce's future plans? The chef — along with Fin's current front-of-house manager Israel Morales — is definitely working on a monthly small supper-club-style event that'll be "50/50 seafood," Pierce tells Eater. "It's definitely something I'm going to be doing for the time being."

Owner of FIN Announces Forthcoming Closure -

For personal health and relocation needs it is no longer viable for me sustain restaurant operations at FIN. Effective Feb 15th, FIN will unfortunately be closing its doors.

On behalf of Chef Trent Pierce and our entire staff we want to thank the many local and out-of-town diners who have supported our efforts, and we wish all of Portland’s restaurant community continued success.

Until closure, FIN will expand its operational hours to include Sunday dining from 5:30pm to close, and we are thrilled to have, former Carlyle and Sel Gris talent, Patrick Schultz, join Chef Pierce and his kitchen team.

If you have yet to experience the stunningly prepared and flavorful seafood produced by FIN’s kitchen, we hope you will have a chance to visit us in the upcoming weeks.

Also, make sure to stay tuned for more details on the special Multi- Course Menu to be offered on Valentine’s Day, Feb 14th, our last night of service.
