After this summer's onslaught of restaurant and bar openings, what could Portland's restaurants possibly throw at you this fall? Well, new projects by Ataula and Stray Dogs, to start, along with a huge food market downtown with nine restaurants inside. And like we said, that's just to start. Here are our most anticipated Portland 2015 fall restaurant openings.
Stray Dogs Brick And Mortar
Location: Kerns Neighborhood
Major Players: Peter Cho, Johnny Leach
The Situation: The Stray Dogs pop-up came to Portland in late 2014 with such gourmet hot dog creations as shrimp sausage with tartar sauce and Korean-style pork galbi with white kimchi. Now, Cho and Leach have secured a location and are preparing a more varied menu of mostly Korean dishes. They haven't announced the location or even the name of their restaurant, but with cooking experience in the David Chang and April Bloomfield empires in New York, they're cooking up one of this fall's top restaurant openings.
Projected Opening: Late November
