Portlanders will soon be able to line up at a whole new location for N Mississippi brunch stars Gravy — Willamette Week reports that the daytime-only restaurant is opening a second restaurant in the very near future.
Gravy 2.0 will move into the Kerns neighborhood, taking over the NE Sandy location left behind by vegetarian restaurant Harvest at the Bindery, which closed after musician-turned-restaurateur Jon Steuer (or Jonny P. Jewels) died unexpectedly in January.
Gravy owner Mark Greco told WWeek that the new location will be fairly faithful to the original (i.e. eggs, biscuits, gravy, and hashes will rule), with only minor tweaks. Perhaps the biggest change will be that he’s considering an evening happy hour in the warmer months, which would suggest longer hours are coming (the original Gravy closes at 3 p.m. daily).
Greco reportedly hadn’t been planning a new location so soon, but jumped in quickly to take the lease from Steuer’s family — and he continues to move quickly, saying he’s hoping to open by mid-March.
