ChefStable's Old Town restaurant Ping has officially died. The space, which had closed for a revamp earlier this year, will instead be re-born into a full-time commisary kitchen for Rick Gencarelli's growing sandwich spot Lardo — as well as a bar by Oven & Shaker bartender Ryan Magarian. The Oregonian is first to report the switcheroo:
[ChefStable owner Kurt] Huffman is bringing in Oven & Shaker bartender Ryan Magarian to build a new, 50-seat bar in the next-door space with lively cocktails, Lardo sandwiches and as many as 40 craft beers on tap.
This one's developing; more information as it becomes available.
