Portland's Evangline - Closed?


Just returned from a trip to Portland and noticed that Evangline has a "For Rent" sign in its window. It's eerie. Flower still on the tables, a menu for Nov. 8 (two weeks ago) still in the window. Anyone know what happened and why?

  1. There were several pieces in the Portland papers (Daily Sun, Press Herald) covering the story. The owner said he was closing to stay home and be a full time dad to his infant.

        I'm sure that the sous chef and bar manager leaving to start their own restaurant helped to make this decision also...
