BREAKING—Portland's iconic food festival Feast returns this September 15 to 18, 2016, and with tickets selling out right this very second, you may be flummoxed by all of your options. Here's what you need to know, with a brief overview of key events and the full list of participating chefs.
DOWNTOWN—After opening two bike-pedaled carts, Moberi is going brick and mortar to serve its vitamin-packed smoothies and bowls. The concept made popular on ABC's Shark Tank is now open at 1876 SW 5th Ave., near Portland State University, and you can hop on and pedal-blend your smoothie yourself or have one of the Moberi crew do it for you.
LAWSUITS—In December, Ramzy Hattar—the restaurateur who owns stakes in Lardo, Kachka and River Pig Saloon—hoped to amicably settle the lawsuit he filed against ChefStable restaurateur Kurt Huffman and Lardo's Rick Gencarelli. As you may recall, Hattar alleged that he was cut out of ownership in Lardo when Huffman and Gencarelli created two new LLCs. Now Hattar has filed a second lawsuit, this one seeking $9 million.
