Eric Bechard To Open “Community Plate”

Eric Bechard of Thistle in McMinville, has announced he will be opening a new restaurant called Community Plate on Feb 1, 2011. According to Eric,  focusing on the same farm to table philosophies that has guided thistle, Community Plate will be a light breakfast/coffee/sandwich shop by day and an old school cookery (think classic comfort food) by night. Set in a 120 year old building in Mcminnville’s old town, Community Plate will be composed of old growth barn wood and vintage architectural salvage pieces. The space will be open, airy and bright with communal seating and an open kitchen.
