DOWNTOWN: The Oregonian reports that downtown's former SuperDog space on SW Sixth will soon welcome a banh mi shop affiliated with NE Sandy's Got Pho and SE Foster's popular An Xuyen bakery. Fittingly, the new restaurant is called Banh Mi. [OregonLive]

DOWNTOWN: Downtown sweet spot Saint Cupcake Galore has announced the launch of a new lunch service, featuring a limited number of sandwiches and salads. Sandwiches, served on Grand Central baguettes, highlight owner/baker Jamie Curl's preserves (cranberry apple chutney is paired with smoked turkey and cheddar; cucumber and tomato jam is served with roasted chickpeas). Lunch is available Monday-Friday, from 11:30am until supplies run out. [EaterWire]

NORTHWEST: Confidential to Eater's Passover-celebrating friends: An operative reports that two spirits by NW's Clear Creek Distillery have been certified kosher-for-Passover (a time of year with stricter dietary restrictions that extend beyond the usual "kosher" expectations). Should Manichewitz not be your thing, Clear Creek's Kirschwasser (a cherry brandy) and Slivovitz (blue plum brandy) are both acceptable Passover options. [EaterWire]
