Township & Range, the neighborhood restaurant by Laurelhurst Theater co-owners Prescott Allen and Woody Wheeler, called it quits last week after a nine-month run on SE Hawthorne. The restaurant announced the shutter on its Facebook page, writing they halted service as of last Monday, December 2: "We give thanks to everyone who enjoyed a meal or a cocktail with us this past year. Look for something new in this space in 2014. In the meantime, we'll continue doing special events." (The restaurant's private events space, which seats 40, opened last month.)
In its lifetime, T&R received mixed reviews — including a "C+" from the Oregonian and a pan from WWeek — but near-uniform praise for its "Brookie," a hybrid brownie/cookie dessert. More information about plans for the space as it becomes available.
