Stumptown founder Duane Sorenson has revealed plans for yet-another restaurant. The Oregonian breaks the news that Sorenson will soon open a Roman-style pizzeria next door to his upcoming Italian restaurant Ava Genes (logo, right). Per the O, the as-yet-unnamed pizzeria will be "modeled in part on New York's Sullivan Street Bakery," offering pizza bianca-style flatbreads.
The spot marks Sorenson's third project currently in the works, a portfolio that includes Ava Genes (scheduled to open in November) and the previously announced Woodsman Hall, a 5,000-square-foot beer-and-brats pub house that's currently under construction. Sorenson's first foray into restaurant ownership, the Woodsman Tavern, debuted in October 2011. No timeline for the new project yet; more as it becomes available.
