Long-time rumors of Tastebud Pizza going into the old Pagenwood Furniture Restoring location in Multnomah Village are finally coming true. According to Portland Monthly, the restaurant will have a fully stocked bar, a retail counter, and a 72-inch Mugnaini wood oven, which will be “the only piece of cooking equipment in the kitchen” – I guess knives, cutting boards, mixers, etc. don’t count.
Doxtader is bringing back his glorious roasted chicken dinners and perfectly charred pizzas, both staples at his short-lived 3220 SE Milwaukie Ave location, which shuttered in January 2013. Also in the works: heaps of Oregon seafood, farm-fresh vegetables and salads, and a new breakfast program featuring baked eggs, French toast, and oatmeal, all wood-fired.
The original Tastebud Pizza started as very popular Portland and Milkaukie Farmers Market booths. In 2011 he opened a brick and mortar location on SE Milwaukie Avenue, which closed in January 2013. You can read a review of that location here.
The new location will be at 7783 SW Capitol Hwy – next door to Village Coffee. Good to hear the area will finally get an good place to eat.
