The magical world of OLCC applications confirms the earlier rumor that Little Big Burger will open its sixth Portland-area location on SE Hawthorne Boulevard, in the space recently vacated by the Blue Pig Cafe. (Incidentally, the location is literally just around the corner from empire builders Micah Camden and Katie Poppe's haute sushi restaurant, Boxer Sushi.)
According to paperwork, plans are for a 48-seat restaurant in LBB's familiar fast-casual mode. The Hawthorne location marks the sixth in Portland (with restaurants currently open in the Pearl, NW 23rd Avenue, N. Mississippi, SE Division, and the South Waterfront); LBB also has one location in Eugene. More as it becomes available.
