A Sterling/M Bar Space; Murray's Cheese in Fred Meyer

NORTHWEST/ALPHABET DISTRICTWWeek reports that NW 21st Avenue's beloved coffee counter Sterling Coffee Roasters (which is being forced to vacate its current digs next to Trader Joe's due to the grocery store's expansion) is in talks to share the nearby M Bar space. Per WW, Sterling would occupy the M Bar space during the day, with the bar operating business as usual in the evenings. More information as it becomes available. [WW]

SOUTHWEST—Legendary Greenwich Village cheese shop Murray's Cheese continues its expansion to the West Coast, announcing that three "mini-store" concepts will soon pop-up inside Fred Meyer grocery stores. The original Murray's opened in NYC in 1940, although a recent partnership with Kroger, Fred Meyer's parent company, has seen Murray's-curated cheese counters pop up in stores nationally, including a QFC in Seattle. The first Portland Murray's, slated for the Burlingame Fred Meyer (on SW Barbur), will debut on June 3. [EaterWire]
