UPDATE – Portland Monthly has written an article about the Lazy Susan taking over the Country Cat location. The article includes the below image showing a rendering of the interior.
The mozaic cat that once marked the Montavilla icon, Country Cat, has been chipped away. The Country Cat closed last August without much explanation. It has sat empty with paper covering the windows all of this Winter. However, over the last month there has been increased activity inside as the tenants ready the space for something new. Once again Eater Portland has the answers to what we will soon see inplace of the Country Cat. Lazy Susan will open soon with and “all-star cast of front-and-back-of-house talent.” Read the Eater Portland article for a detailed description of what’s to come. From the sounds of it, we could have another nationally know destination restaurant taking the space of Montavilla’s last one.
