Portobanco's Nicaraguan is gone

Stan | Mar 9, 2002 02:10 PM

Portobanco's, a Nicaraguan place on Venice Blvd near Fairfax that Gold and others have recommended, is gone. Gold says that spot used to be the best-ever Ethiopian restaurant, and the good news is that it is now a promising-looking Ethiopian restaurant again, though I haven't been inside. I didn't write down the name (my memory says it's something like Phen-Fen, but that can't be right), but the address is 5779 Venice Blvd for anyone who wants to try it. It's kind of an oddly pleasant location set back from Venice and with not much else around it.
