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 Gregory Gourdet’s future restaurant, the closure of a classic Portland bakery, and the arrival of a restaurant dedicated to a hard-to-find Thai street food. But a few stories did fall through the cracks:
COMEBACK LUNCH — In its early days, Maya Lovelace’s Southern restaurant Yonder was open for lunch, the ideal time to eat iceberg salads with pickled ramp vinaigrette or fried chicken sandwiches with pimento cheese. The restaurant stopped serving lunch to open its supper club sibling Mae and to begin serving brunch. Now, the restaurant has reopened for lunch, switched up the days of its supper club service, and added a few new things to the menu, including North Carolina country ham and shrimp burger sliders. Take a look at Yonder’s new menu here. [EaterWire]
REAL GOOD LUNCH — Yonder isn’t the only place getting into mid-day meals: Real Good Food, the new-ish high-end grocer near East Burnside, started serving lunches this Thursday, focusing on ingredients found in the pantry-staple shop. For instance, the store uses Mustard & Co ground whole grain with Jacobsen salt on its ham, butter, and mustard sandwich, all stacked on Grano “Ficelle” bread. [EaterWire]
