I’ve been hearing about this brewing for a few months, and finally I can break the silence of this exciting new restaurant/bar my friend Alyssa is working on.
I’ve yet to see the space, but I’ve heard she’s been working on it non-stop and it looks incredible. Hopefully I’ll get over there soon, but until then, here’s her announcement (via email and from her website):
I am happy to announce that I am opening my first restaurant, Spints, at the beginning of December, 2009. Spints will be an alehouse featuring Northern European cuisine and eclectic blend of local and regional beers. In addition, our cocktail menu will focus on local distillers along with in-house craftsmanship. I will be acting as both owner and executive chef. The cuisine will be have its main focus on traditional German food, but have some influence from Belgium and Northern France to add some lighter fare. Overseeing the management of the bar will be Ted Charak, formerly of Teardrop Lounge. The restaurant will be located at 401 N.E. 28th Ave. (x-street flanders) and will be open Tuesday-Saturday for dinner with brunch to be added soon after. The neighboring businesses and residences have been very welcoming to this new addition and I look forward to being a part of the community. For further updates please visit spintspdx.com.
