DOWNTOWN — Portland's upcoming Pine Street Market, the 10,000-square-foot food hall slated to open in November, has signed five high-profile tenants. The latest to come on board is Andina, the Pearl District's popular upscale Peruvian spot. Peter Platt, who runs Andina with his family, says it will offer lunch, dinner and late night snacks, with a slimmed down menu of Andina favorites and plenty of craft cocktails. The others tenants are Olympia Provisions, Barista, Hopworks Urban Brewery and a bread and pastries spot by Ken Forkish.
EASTSIDE — One of Portland's most popular and hard to get into weekend brunch spots is now offering brunch during the weekday. Screen Door, which celebrates its 10th anniversary in August, will offer its line-worthy Southern-inspired brunch menu Mondaythrough Friday, plus a lunch menu centered around more than a dozen sandwiches like muffalettas and po'boys, plus salads and vegetable-centric dishes.
