Several of the micro-restaurants operating inside Portland Food Hall fired up the burners on Friday, and as the photo gallery above reveals, the food hall’s ground floor will be home to the majority of its restaurants—seven of its eight total businesses—with a mezzanine for more communal seating and the forthcoming Minibar cocktail bar.
Portland Food Hall set up shop at 827 SW 2nd Ave. on a downtown block becoming more of a culinary hotspot. Luc Lac started the trend by opening at 835 SW 2nd Ave. in 2011, and both Q Restaurant and High Noon establish themselves across the street within the past year and a half.
As Portland Food Hall gears up to get going full speed, it is still looking for two more vendors to join its ranks. Currently, the confirmed food businesses are the Cosa coffeeshop, Moberi, The Whole Bowl, Boke Dokie, Aiko Ramen, and Minibar.
