1) Pearl District: The Pearl District space once home to Metrovino has swapped wine lists and white tablecloths for high-def TVs and couches: a sports bar dubbed the Fields Bar & Grill made its debut earlier this month. An early food menu reveals sections for small plates (avocado fries, steak bites with a veal demi-glaze), burgers/sandwiches, and full entrees (like a steak and shrimp scampi surf-and-turf, kailua pig served with macaroni salad, and sockeye salmon in a pesto-avocado butter. Hours of operation: 11a.m. to 11p.m., Sunday through Thursday; 11a.m. to 2a.m., Friday and Saturday. [EaterWire]

2) Foster-Powell: Former Dots owners Monica and Jennifer Ransdell closed and revamped their year-old Lily Day Cafe, reopening the space at SE 52nd Ave. and SE Powell as Midpoint Food & Drink earlier this month. Unlike Lily Day's breakfast bent, Midpoint will serve full breakfast, lunch, and dinner (with happy hour thrown in for good measure). In addition to morning scrambles and breakfast sandwiches, the lunch/dinner menu sees a half-dozen sandwiches, several hot dogs (including "Reuben" and a "taco" version topped with guacamole, sour cream, and ground beef), salads, and a Midpoint meatloaf plate. Hours of operation: 8a.m. to 10p.m., daily. [EaterWire]

3) West End: The west side has a new bottle shop, in the form of Europa Wine Merchant, now open at SW 11th and Alder. Owner Michael Rhodes promises both local, national, and internationally produced wines, with a focus on "artisan, family scale production, organic viticulture, and traditional, non-interventionist winemaking techniques." More information here. Hours of operation: 11a.m. to 6p.m, Monday through Wednesday; 11a.m. to 7p.m., Thursday through Saturday; 11a.m. to 4p.m., Sunday. [EaterWire]
