I received a tip on Monday that the Brasserie was making a chef change. Being a bit gun shy after my “closed” debacle back in early January, I haven’t posted about it. This week however, a “Closed for Remodel” sign has appeared on the door. There seemed to be some sort of shakeup going on, and since I now have a contact address, I sent off an email and got this response from the owners:
“Dear friends, family, & business associates,
We are pleased to announce that after resurrecting an historic building in downtown portland and restoring the Brasserie Montmartre restaurant to itʼs original grandeur, we have entered into a sales agreement with “Three French Americanos, LLC.” for the purchase and operation of the restaurant. We have spent the last two years living and breathing “The Brasserie” and couldnʼt feel more proud to be passing on such a great establishment and experience to this new restaurant group.
Our passion and expertise lie in creating a beautiful space for people to come and enjoy and we will soon be looking forward to the next project. As for now, we have a sweet little baby girl on the way and will enjoy some down time as we start a new journey as parents.
Business at the Brasserie will continue as usual and you may catch us sitting at the bar enjoying a Manhattan… This project has been very close to our hearts and we hope everyone will continue to be devoted patrons.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions. We will certainly keep everyone posted on our upcoming adventures and projects…
Thank you for all of your support,
Matt & Sara Maletis
