A ton of notable Portland restaurants — including major players like luxe French restaurant St. Jack, sandwich behemoth Lardo, and Pearl pizzeria Oven and Shaker — will open locations in Lake Oswego. Kurt Huffman, the entrepreneur behind restaurant group Chefstable, is planning a major expansion in the southern suburb, with six new restaurants opening by 2021.

According to the Portland Business Journal, Huffman is working on a massive, “15,000-square-foot microcosm of Portland’s dining scene” to open in the March of that year. Fast-casual pasta bar Grassa and beer bar Loyal Legion will also join the development, as well as a sixth restaurant to be determined. Most of the restaurants heading to Lake O are decently casual, excluding St. Jack; chef Aaron Barnett told the business journal that the suburban version of the restaurant will feel a touch more low-key, with a “barroom vibe.” The restaurants will share a large outdoor dining area, and host festivals and events.

The restaurant row will go into a residential and commercial development at the corner of Southwest Boones Ferry Road and Kruse Way, a gargantuan development with more than 200 apartments and 50,000 square feet of retail space.

Huffman won’t stop with Lake Oswego, however; the restaurant group has leases for spaces in Vancouver, Beaverton, and Cedar Hills, as well. Stay tuned for more details on Huffman’s rapid expansion out of Portland.
