My parents favortie place to eat is coming back to Portland! An incredible location, this will bring more folks to teh Pearl.
News of a new Trader Vic’s moving into the Pearl District in Northwest Portland is not news at all to most who live there.
But as the moving process continues, the proposed spot for Trader Vic’s at Northwest 12th Avenue and Glisan Street requires a land use review by Portland’s Bureau of Development Services, and the bureau is welcoming public input on the proposal.
Trader Vic’s has asked to install new doors, wooden windows and canopies. And they want permission to set up five 10-foot tall tiki torches near the right-of-way. Because of this the Bureau of Transportation’s Encroachment Committee will need to approve it before it becomes part of the land use review.
Trader Vic’s is the old-school restaurant chain that brought the umbrella’ed mai tai and other tropical decoration to Middle America. It was announced in December that the restaurant would return to Portland and set up shop in the building that was once occupied by Manzana restaurant.
Written public comments on the land use proposal are due to BDS by 5 p.m. March 3. Comments can be mailed or delivered to Dave Skilton 1900 S.W. 4th Ave., Suite 5000, and should include case file number: LU 10-203840 DZ.
