The waterfront views at Salty's on the Columbia are currently (and once again, abruptly) off-limits. A recorded message on the 26-year-old restaurant's voicemail announces that "due to an unforeseen maintenance issue, we will be closed for remodel until October" — suggesting that patrons interesting in dining-with-a-view check out downtown's Portland City Grill instead.
But several tipsters report that the Portland branch of the seafood chainlet (which has locations in Seattle and Des Moines, WA) has shuttered for good, and that a new concept — spearheaded by many of Salty's existing staff — is why the space is undergoing a remodel. This one's developing... have any intel? You know what to do.
