Exciting news comes from The Oregonian this morning: Submarine Hospitality, the restaurant group behind Tusk and Ava Gene’s, is partnering with London’s Hoxton hotel group to open a smattering of hotel bars and a restaurant. La Neta, the incoming hotel’s primary restaurant, will be open all day serving seasonal, “Mexican-inspired” cuisine with some sort of Pacific Northwestern bent. Johnny Leach, of the shuttered Chalino, will be handing the restaurant’s menu as the executive chef. On the roof, you’ll find a bar featuring Mexico City street food and plenty of mezcal. The hotel’s subterranean bar will be more of a tribute to the neighborhood. From the Oregonian story:
In the basement, Submarine plans to open a cocktail bar with a menu of “sharable American-Chinese classics” such as kung pao chicken, beef and broccoli and egg rolls, all made with seasonal ingredients. Cocktails for all three projects were created by Submarine Bar Director Collin Nicholas.
The hotel is scheduled to open in late fall or winter, on NW 4th near Ground Kontrol. To book a room or learn more, check out the Portland hotel’s website.
Correction: This story has been corrected to show the hotel should open in late fall or winter.
