Perfetto Update -- Portland, ME

Lynn | Mar 6, 2004 09:45 AM

So the rumor about town had been that the School St. Cafe folks had bought Perfetto's. That must have fallen through because the space is for lease now, apparently because the landlord jacked the rent so high that a restaurant that size is no longer feasible.

I think it's a shame, and I think its odd because there are so many empty or soon-to-be empty store fronts on Exchange now. It doesn't seem like a high rent environment currently. There's a good chance that Perfetto space will revert back to two store fronts, which would be better than a chain restaurant I guess.

Anyone been to Rachel's in their new location? I would love to hear some feedback.
