Rick Gencarelli's sandwich chainlet Lardo makes it official at its third Portland-area location, swinging the doors open at its new N. Williams Avenue location at 11a.m. today. To celebrate, Gencarelli's seeing in threes: The new sandwich shop will dish out $3 sandwiches all day, while Breakside Brewing will enact a "tap takeover," offering $3 beers (also available: $3 sides and $3 cocktails).
The opening deal will continue throughout the day. The location, deemed Lardo North, joins Gencarelli's shops on SE Hawthorne and in the West End; his empire also includes the fast-casual pasta counter Grassa. The previously announced ChefStable bakery, which will share the space, is still in the works.
