What's going on at NE MLK's Pasta Allegro? Portland Monthly, citing a tipster, brings word that the make-your-own pasta spot has shuttered after just three months in business, although a recorded phone message dating to August 19 says that the spot is temporarily closed "for the next two to three weeks for annual equipment repairs and some remodeling work." The voicemail urges guests to "stop by and see our exciting changes" in the coming weeks. Earlier this month, Pasta Allegro suspended lunch service "due to daytime sales volume." [EaterWire]
ESSENTIAL UPDATE: Owner Tammy Hobrecht confirms that Pasta Allegro is indeed temporarily closed for a revamp; reports of its death were an exaggeration.
