It looks like Heartbreaker Neighborhood Kitchen’s temporary closure may be more permanent. Eater Portland has a write up of the future Sebastiano’s Italian deli going into 411 SE 81st Avenue. They will offer prepared food, wines, and specialty pantry items. Sebastiano’s website is not yet live but look for updates at sebastianospdx.com. We will add pictures, when the wraps come off the new space.
The Townshend Montavilla Teahouse, at 7940 SE Stark Street, closed this winter quietly after only three years. Although longtime residents were more loyal to the Bipartisan Cafe across the street, it was a nice addition to the Montavilla town. Fortunately the space is set to open to a new tenant soon. White Rabbit is slated to open in the space, notes Eater.com. White Rabbit is going to be a new brunch spot by the people who operate Hungry Heart Bakery. This is a second attempt in the neighborhood for Jax and Morgan Hart. Their now closed Heartbreaker is just around the corner at 411 SE 81ST Ave. I look forward to seeing what they bring to Stark Street.
