PORTLAND BECOMING A MECCA FOR MIDDLE-EASTERN/MEDITERRANEAN CUISINES WITH NEW EVO OPENING IN THE SPRING

PORTLAND BECOMING A MECCA FOR MIDDLE-EASTERN/MEDITERRANEAN CUISINES WITH NEW EVO OPENING IN THE SPRING

Now that Tiqa and Ebb and Flow are firmly established (and in record time), the newest entrant promises to be a swank-moderne palace of authentic Middle Eastern cuisine – a bit of Beirut on Fore Street in the Old Port. It will open in the late spring at the corner retail space of the Hyatt Place Hotel. The restaurant, calledEVO, is the brainchild of Casey Prentice, who also owns the Chebeague Island Inn and a principal of the Prentice Hospitality Group; he’s also a partner in the massive urban renewal efforts going on a 58 Fore Street, the former home of the Portland Company’s oceanfront boat-building compound.
