Portland's closed for good

Portland's steakhouse on commercial street in Portland closed yesterday. It's unfortunate but in my opinion, it was inevitable. Going from Pan-Asian to Steakhouse is a difficult transition, especially considering they shut down the back dining room and went from one of the most profitable genres of food to the least profitable. Let's face it, Portland cannot sustain a high end steakhouse...just not possible.

  1. The close had not so much to do with genre, IMO. Mainly to do with service and quality. Nobody wants to shell out for food that's indifferently prepared and served, no matter what's on the menu.
