Chef Courtney Sproule's pop-up supper club now has permanent digs to call its own. Portland Monthly brings word that Sproule's Din Din Supper Club has secured a 50-seat space inside NE Portland's Bison Building, with plans to serve weekday lunch, weekend brunch, and a version of Din Din's popular recurring dinners — by rotating the brick-and-mortar's menu at least twice a month.
According to Sproule, designer Erik Churchill will turn the site into a versatile space that "mirrors the spirit of our new incarnation of the supper club, while still allowing us to realize the space anew each time," Sproule says. "We will design décor for each din din, just as we do now. Weekday and brunch guests will often sit at tables dressed for that particular week's din din, which will add a little fun element to each stop in." The weekday menu will offer a full espresso bar (featuring beans by Sterling Coffee) with morning pastries; lunch will feature menu items like dressed lentils du Puy with Bleu d'Auvergne and endive, and simple sandwiches like ham and Camembert on a baguette. Sproule's take on brunch, meanwhile, offers a small set menu (with items like a duck egg omelette), as well as dishes inspired by the week's supper club theme.
Din Din's brick-and-mortar is shooting for a February 2013 opening date.
