Corner Bakery Cafe Coming; Accanto Lands New Chef

EVERYWHERE— The Dallas-based Corner Bakery Cafe chain is actively seeking real estate in Portland: The Portland Business Journal reports the franchise just inked a deal to open 12 cafes in Oregon and Vancouver, Washington in the coming months, and in Portland proper, is "searching for a 3,500-square-foot to 4,500-square-foot space within the city." True to its name, the fast-casual concept is a hybrid bakery and cafe, with a menu featuring sandwiches, soups, salads, and sweets. [PBJ]

SOUTHEAST— Chef Sean Temple (most recently of Pauleé and Alu Wine Bar) has taken over the kitchen of SE Belmont's Accanto, the sister restaurant to the currently closed fine-dining spot Genoa. According to a press release, Temple plans to add a whole-animal butchery program to Accanto's repertoire. [EaterWire]

NW/ALPHABET DISTRICT— The Bent Brick has launched a nightly four-course, family-style tasting menu featuring chef Ryan Mead's whims of the day. The $49 meal features a salad, appetizer, entree, and dessert: A recent menu included grilled pork belly with chanterelle mushrooms, Chinook salmon with tarbais beans, and an apricot cobbler for dessert.
