The Portland Business Journal reports that Yard House, a California-based chain whose locations always boast an extensive tap list, has signed a lease to open in downtown's Pioneer Place shopping mall. Company reps would not comment on the exact location, but rumors that Yard House will occupy the former Todai restaurant space seem unfounded — paperwork shows that a Dragon Gate Buffet has claimed that particular spot. Either way, expect a long build-out: Projected opening date is next June. [PBJ]
