Rodney Muirhead is stretching out on NE Killingsworth. WWeek is the first to confirm that the owner of Podnah's Pit will open a bar dubbed La Taq in the 900-square-foot space next door to Podnah's (formerly home to Headquarters Barbershop). Per WW: "The kitchen will be 'completely separate' from the restaurant, Muirhead says, and will focus on the type of Mexican fare often found at Podnah's." (Podnah's launched a Tex-Mex Monday night in October 2012, with dishes like brisket enchiladas, queso fundido, and house-chorizo tacos.)
According to an OLCC application, Muirhead plans on a 36-seat bar open evenings only. Projected opening, per WW: June 2013. More as it becomes available.
