More good news: Closed for more than six weeks after a sprinkler pipe burst in a second-floor office suite, the portello winecafe has finally reopened in Bend’s NorthWest Crossing neighborhood.
The cozy restaurant and wine bar greeted old friends on Friday, then launched a new live music series with a Saturday evening show by Spokane singer-guitarist Marshall McLean. Laurel Brauns will perform this Saturday from 6 to 8 p.m., with Erin Cole-Baker scheduled on Valentine’s night, Feb. 14.
An integral part of the west side’s NorthWest Crossing neighborhood, Portello is open for lunch and dinner every day but Sunday. www.portellowinecafe.com or 541-385-1777.
