The Latest

CHANGING HANDS — French bakery Philippe’s Bread on N Williams has undergone a switcheroo, and is now Dos Hermanos. It’s still overseen by the ChefStable group, and is run by a pair of brothers, Gabriel and Josue Azcorra. They hail from the Yucatan in Mexico, and cut their teeth at now-closed artisanal spot Delphina’s Bakery. Wholesale is a major part of the operation: the bakery is selling bread to Lardo, Grassa, Fire on the Mountain, and others. But there’s counter service too, with sandwiches (chipotle chicken, meatball), soups (pozole), pastries, and more, open 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily. [EaterWire]

ROLLING DOWNTOWN — Maker of the “best balls in PDX” (their line, not ours) 24th and Meatballs has opened its third location in the city. The roller of ground meats and vegan alternatives has kept with the same naming protocol and opened Broadway and Meatballs at 515 SW Broadway. [EaterWire]

SEITANIC SANDWICHES — Vegetarian sandwich cart DC Vegetarian now has a brick and mortar location — the makers of faux-cheesesteaks, Reubens, and more have landed on SE 50th and Division. [PoMo]

MORE FOR MERCADO — Latin card pod Mercado is now home to Puerto Rican food cart El Coquí. The cart is specializing in monfongo, a bowl of fried green plantains filled with pork, vegetables or chicken. [EaterWire]

SHALOM AGAIN — John Gorham (Toro Bravo) and Renee Gorham now have double the creative Israeli food to offer to Portland, with a second location now open. They’ve moved east of the Willamette this time, taking over the former Taylor Railworks space in Southeast Portland. [EaterWire]

BRUNCH X COFFEE — E Burnside and 24th is now home to Kitchen Sink Food + Drink, which is doing a range of egg sandwiches on house-made sourdough English muffins for breakfast and buttery hand pies for lunch — it’s open daily from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. with evenings (and beer) in the works. [EaterWire]

PARISIAN CLASSICS — Replacing small plates restaurant SuperBite in the same location is the newest project from James Beard Award-winners Greg Denton and Gabrielle Quiñonez Denton: Bistro Agnes is a French-style brasserie with classics like cassoulet and chicken liver mousse, and some American crossovers such as a cheeseburger with Bordelais sauce. [EaterWire]
