St. Jack NW Sets Opening Date; Clear Creek Distillery Sold

NW/ALPHABET DISTRICT— An opening date's been set for Aaron Barnett's west side location of St. Jack: The Oregonian reports St. Jack NW will make it official on Valentine's Day, aka February 14. As previously reported, pastry chef Alissa Frice (nee Rozos) will not open an accompanying patisserie on the west side, but per the O, expect a new line of pastries to emerge from ChefStable's still-under-construction North Williams bakery. Last fall, Barnett teased new NW concepts like a roving cheese cart and tableside flambée, both of which seem appropriate for V-Day dining. [OregonLive; previously]

NORTHWEST PORTLAND/HOOD RIVER— NW Portland's Clear Creek Distillery has been sold to Hood River Distillers in an attempt to grow the brand. The Portland Business Journal reports that terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Clear Creek will retain its NW facility, and founder Steve McCarthy plans to stay on-board as an "adviser and spokesperson."

DIVISION/CLINTON— Chef Katy Millard's Coquine Supper Club has announced a long-term pop-up at the SE Wine Collective: Its recurring "Chicken Dinner Monday" will launch in March for six weeks, offering wood-grilled chicken by the half or whole, served with a rotating menu of appetizers, sides, and dessert. (The casual dinners arrive to the table family-style.) The pop-ups don't start until March 17, but Coquine is accepting reservations now; they're available by emailing here. [EaterWire]
