Chef Will Preisch Launches Holdfast Supper Club

Former Bent Brick chef Will Preisch — whose departure early this year resulted in a major conceptual shift at the NW restaurant — has returned to Portland with a new project in tow. Portland Monthly brings first word that Preisch will soon debut a pop-up supper club dubbed Holdfast, offering Preisch's take on a "refined dining concept — not refinement in the sense of luxury — just pared down to what we consider to be the essentials of a wonderful meal."

Preisch, who offered a playful and modern take on "tavern food" at the Bent Brick, left the kitchen earlier this year to sharpen his skills in Europe: Expect influences from his short stints at Relae in Copenhagen, Septime in Paris, and Dill Restaurant in Reykjavik. The pop-ups kick off next week at Old Town's KitchenCru space, with three dinners scheduled for June 28 through 30. The first dinner series will feature nine-course meal (with four to five wine pairings) for a $75 reservation. More information here.
