Rumors of its shutter had been floating around (on Yelp and Zagat), but now the owners have made it official: The Oregonian is the first to report that Plainfield's Mayur Restaurant, the Indian spot known for its unique dining room and sprawling backyard patio, will shutter after a staggering 35-year run (split between two locations). According to an announcement on Plainfield's website by owners Rich and Rekha Plainfield, the neighboring "Multnomah Athletic Club has bought our building and we have to empty the building within 45 days." Plainfield's will bid farewell to its customers with an open-house celebration on June 22, featuring complimentary food and wine, an art sale, and door prizes throughout the evening. Interested attendees are asked to RSVP here.
Plainfield's originally opened at NW 21st and Kearney in 1977, moving to the SW 21st location, a restored historic mansion, in 1986. According to the Oregonian obituary, the restaurant housed one of Portland's first tandoori ovens.
