It’s Friday, which means it’s time for the weekly EaterWire round up of all those news items we didn’t quite cover. This week’s food news cycle was dominated by the impending closure of a Portland institution and the future restaurant taking its place. But there were some news tidbits that slid through the cracks. Let’s get into it:

DOUGHNUT GROVE — Novelty-bakery-slash-cultural-phenomenon Voodoo Doughnut will open its first suburban location in Oak Grove. The 24-hour doughnut shop should open at 14620 SE Mcloughlin Blvd before the year ends. [Oregonian]

ANOTHER DOOR OPENS — Earlier this year, Hawthorne Italian restaurant 3 Doors Down announced that it had changed ownership. The new owners, Michael Galloway and Jeff Saulsbury, have now announced their third partner: Jason Stratton, a former Top Chef contestant and Food & Wine best new chef, is known for his time at Seattle’s Mamnoon.

LEVELING UP — Voodoo Doughnut isn’t the only Portland brand heading south: Level Beer, the video-game-themed brewery in Northeast Portland, will open a taproom in Multnomah Village within the next few months. Level Beer’s space will take over a portion of the former O’Connor’s space, alongside Toro Bravo’s Jewish-Israeli restaurant Y’alla. [Brewpublic]
