Yet another chef has left Pinot Brasserie in SW Portland
In the continuing saga that has surrounded Pinot Brasserie at SW 12th and Washington, the replacement chef for the opening executive chef Bill King has been fired. According to Extra MSG, “I confirmed with the management that Paul Arnold is out and has been replaced by Ryan Smith, previous chef at Rivershore Bar & Grill in Oregon City at the Best Western“.
Oh My. I’d love to see them succeed, but this is the most poorly conceived and executed restaurant to come along in some time. I wish the new chef best of luck, but, um… I’m not hopeful. (Of course, it’s all my fault, see this post)
