Barnwood beauty at Portobello Vegan Trattoria

Whether vegan or not, you’ve probably heard of Portobello Vegan Trattoria.

It’s the wildly popular and tasty brainchild of Chef Aaron Adams and his biz partner Dinae Horne.

We first met Aaron and Dinae when their shop was located two doors down from our HQ.  But with the crush of folks flocking to that location, Portobello quickly outgrew the space.

Aaron and Dinae recently opened their new, more expansive digs at 1125 Southeast Division Place and it’s a really cool spot.  An entire long wall is clad with a collage of reclaimed wood that Dinae and Aaron sourced from all over Portland, and whimsical pen art depicts forest plants and creatures throughout the space.

What’s more, the table tops and bar counter top were created by Hammer & Hand from upcycled barnwood.  Take a look at the pics by bright designlab.  Pretty nifty…
