Cartopia’s Perierra Crêperie cart will close on New Year’s Eve, reopening as a breakfast and lunch sandwich spot in early 2019. One of Portland’s pioneers in the 21st Century food cart renaissance, Perierra serves the French classic with fillings like prosciutto and honey or walnuts and gorgonzola.
In 2009, Dustin Knox opened Perierra Crêperie at the new Cartopia food pod, which Portland Monthly’s Karen Brooks called “the country’s first rock ’n roll food-cart corral.” How fitting, then, that the cart will close on New Year’s Eve, serving its final crepes into the early hours of 2019. Knox owns two other stalls in the Cartopia pod, Chicken & Guns and Bottle Rocket, but the crepe cart was his first. Still, Knox has known he wanted to close the cart for about a year. “Ten years is a long run, especially for a food cart, and it’s personally a healthy choice for myself to create a new concept,” Knox says. “I’ve learned a lot in the last 10 years.”
The cart will reopen as Wild Mountain Honey in February 2019; stay tuned for more details on the menu.
