Portland Eatery Reopens

Plant-based Italian eatery Portobello Vegan Trattoria celebrates its re-opening in Portland, Ore.

On June 9, vegan Italian restaurant Portobello Vegan Trattoria will reopen for hungry plant-based palates in Portland, Ore. The eatery closed its doors temporarily in April and has moved into a larger space to accommodate its rapidly growing clientele. Along with moving spaces, the restaurant has updated its menu to include vegan pizza and a full bar. Menu items at the revamped locale change frequently depending on seasonal produce, but currently include veganized Italian standards such as lasagna, beet tartare, and sausage and cheese ravioli. Every Tuesday, the eatery donates 10 percent of its proceeds to a different vegan-friendly charity.
