Portland Restaurants, Bars, and Cafes Open Ahead of the Tuesday Ice Storm

As Portlanders brace for a bout of freezing rain today, many restaurant owners and workers have made a choice to either brave the weather or avoid the risk

Over the weekend, snow, ice, and temperatures in the teens created chaos in Portland, from downed trees blocking off roads to massive power outages leaving tens of thousands without electricity. The weather impacted the city’s food scene, as well: Food cart owners who intended to open their businesses encountered weather-related damage or lost power. Even some who were able to open struggled to keep their space warm and functioning as pipes froze.

In general, it appears more restaurants and bars are choosing to close on Tuesday, January 16, including those that remained open through the weekend. “While we braved the snow to bring y’all all the pasta and cozy vibes you needed these past few days, freezing rain is not something to be messed with,” an Instagram post from Gabbiano’s reads. “Given the forecast, we’re going to close tonight in an abundance of caution.”

While some businesses have agreed to open today, closing early for the storm, the unpredictable nature of the weather can change plans swiftly. It’s best to call or check a business’s Instagram story before venturing into the cold, just in case the team had to close things down unexpectedly. Know of another opening or closing?
