It will be called Porto, a breakfast/lunch/brunch eatery opening toward the end of spring. Owner Christine Liskowicz also hinted at a “surprise” coming for Friday nights.

Soon to be Porto

We caught up with owner Christine Liskowicz and she said she plans to serve coffee, pastries, and a small menu for breakfast and lunch, much of it with a nod toward Portugeuse cuisine. Porto (pronounced Port-oo) is, after all, the second biggest city in Portugal.
