Kevin Cavenaugh, the man behind the Two-Thirds micro-restaurant complex in St. Johns, just celebrated a pair of openings—a restaurant and a tap room—just in time for the 10th Annual St. Johns Bizarre.
The Sudra, a vegan Indian restaurant, and The Garrison Tap Room, an extension of Royale Brewing Co., are now in business. Cavenaugh is also the man behind northeast Portland's micro-restaurant complex The Ocean.
Right now, the Sudra is softly open, with hours lasting from Wednesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to close. Plans, however, are in place for it to stay open seven days a week. Owner Sanjay Chandrasekaran says his St. Johns spot shares the same menu with his northeast location, so expect to see plant-based dishes such as chickpea cutlets, chickenless tikka masala, and kale dosas. There's also a full bar menu, including mocktails.
And The Sudra's not alone. Neighboring Royale Brewing Co. also opened the doors to its taproom, The Garrison, on Friday the 13th, drawing in a large crowd. Owners Ben Preacher, Paul Bastian, Mike Weksler, and Jack Houston, will be operating with a full liquor license, but, for now, they're only serving six tap beers.
The tap room, which shares a patio with The Sudra, doesn't serve food, but food from outside eateries is welcome on the premises. As of now, the tap room's operating hours are Wednesday and Thursday, 5 to 11 p.m., Friday, 5 p.m. to midnight, Saturday, noon to midnight, and Sunday, noon to 11 p.m. The tap room is closed Monday and Tuesday.
Stay tuned for the next Two-Thirds opening.
