Portland News to Chew
Harlow's debut, 2nd Story's shutter, Pickathon's culinary stars, and more of the week's Portland restaurant and bar news.
←Harlow debuts on Hawthorne: The team behind the Pearl District's vegan eatery Prasad have opened Harlow, their eat-side, all-gluten-free, vegetarian restaurant in the former BridgePort Ale House space. Harlow offers breakfast (think scrambles, oatmeal banana walnut pancakes, and parfaits topped with GF granola), lunch (quinoa-based veggie bowls, raw salads, and vegan mac & cheese), dinner (raw veggie burgers and barbecue tempeh), and drinks (both boozy and non, like on-tap Soma Kombucha) from the smoothie bar. Harlow is open Monday through Saturday from 8 am to 9 pm and Sunday from 8 am to 3 pm. 3632 SE Hawthorne Blvd
2nd Story to shutter: One of our favorite new brunch spots of 2013 is closing this month. 2nd Story, Erin McBride's small plates eatery above neighborhood coffee roaster Cellar Door, will close on July 20. The shutter will allow McBride to focus on providing food and pastries to the first floor coffee shop. 2005 SE 11th Ave

Bar Dobre will be open for the morning meal Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am to 3 pm, and Xico will offer a range of Mexican a.m. specialties on Sundays from 10 am to 2 pm.
Pies for all: The brick-and-mortar outpost of Mary Sheridan's Honey Pot bakery and cafe is now open on North Mississippi.
