Over at Portland Monthly, scooparina Karen Brooks brings the first word about brick-and-mortar plans for the pop-up ramen party Boke Bowl: Chef Patrick Fleming and partner Brannon Riceci have signed a lease for a 50-seat spot on SE Water Ave., right next door to Bunk Bar.
According to Brooks, the location will focus on lunch (leading into a nice segway for drinks and dinner next door), and Fleming "is sketching out possible weekly events for the new location, including a family-style Korean fried chicken night. Another idea on the drawing board: Boke breakfast, emphasizing light, Japanese-influenced foods." More details at Eat Beat, but keep this on your calendar: Projected opening is October.
