"Micro-restaurant" complex the Ocean has landed yet-another high-profile tenant: After a drawn-out process that saw several brick-and-mortar possibilities fall through, the pork purveyors behind Tails & Trotters announced they've signed a lease at the NE communal culinary space. Per the spot's Facebook page: "Our long national nightmare is finally over! It's official, T&T has signed a lease for a fabulous space! We will be a part of the great new food collective called the Ocean on NE 24th & Glisan/Sandy. Look for easy access to your porky needs sometime around Oct 1."
Co-owner Aaron Silverman launched T&T with former clarklewis chef Morgan Brownlow (who has since departed the company), and the duo first announced their plans for a brick-and-mortar retail shop more than two years ago; most recently, Silverman had been eyeing a space in Mount Tabor. The Ocean complex, meanwhile, boasts tenants including Basa Basa, 24th and Meatballs, and Uno Mas.
