So, Cheryl Wakerhouser of Pix and John Taboada from Navarre are opening Bar Pastiche this week. Tapas on Hawthorne, everybody! They haven't set a date yet, so we must wait in jubilant anticipation. Keep your eyes and ears open.
Also, Il Piatto is offering a special all month on their new dinner pastas--$6.95 each. Anyone have any thoughts on Il Piatto? Any good? Seems worth it for 7 bucks. It might be fun to get a bunch of people together and sample a whole bunch because the menu (link below) looks very promising.
I'll post an invite to Il Piatto on the PortlandFood forum tomorrow--I just barely registered so my login isn't working yet. I'd love to meet some of you PDX hounds in person--you're all be coming heroes of mine. :)
(Oh, and of course, just now I'm finding a Mercury column that mentions both Pastiche and Piatto--I thought I was so brilliant, but here they've beat me to it. Ah well.)
