Major expansion news coming from Portland Monthly: Aaron Barnett's acclaimed Lyonnaise bistro St. Jack will soon open an outpost on NW 23rd Avenue, in the brand-new "Benevento" building that's also home to Lompoc Tavern and an upcoming outpost of Pacific Pie Co. ChefStable's Kurt Huffman would not confirm whether the new project was a second location or an outright move for St. Jack, which opened on SE Clinton in December 2010, but the space is a major upgrade that will house two concepts — a restaurant and a bar. Per PoMo:

"The new 2,600-square-foot project, set to open in December, will feature a restaurant and bar, 45 seats each, linked by a kitchen but with separate entrances. St. Jack's Amelie-cute patisserie will not make the journey from Southeast Portland to Northwest. Huffman says a new bakery project is also in the works."

Recent St. Jack addition John Salas, an alum of NYC's Saxon + Parole, will head the bar program on NW 23rd, where Barnett will offer a completely separate bar menu, including a seafood bar. Developing.

UPDATE—According to a Facebook post, this will be St. Jack's second location: "We have no plans on shutting the original St. Jack. Not to worry."
