Family-run landmark to close doors December 28, 2014.
PORTLAND, Ore. — December 16, 2014 — One of Portland’s oldest family-run Chinese restaurants, Hunan Restaurant, will close after 35 years in downtown Portland.
Located in the historic Morgan’s Alley, Hunan Restaurant – with it’s traditional red and gold decor, live fish tanks and specialties like General Tso’s chicken – first introduced Portlanders to the experience of Chinese food in the late 70‘s and has served as both a special occasion destination for Portland families and a lunchtime staple for downtown workers since then.
“The Liu family has served generations of Portlanders through the years and their restaurant is a downtown landmark. We want to honor that by making sure that those who have special memories can say goodbye to David and his family before the restaurant closes.” Says Tom Kilbane, a partner at Urban Renaissance Group and manager of the Morgan Building and Morgan’s Alley.
Mr. Liu says his decision to close the restaurant was a difficult one necessitated by health issues. Final lunch and dinner service at Hunan is set for Sunday, December 28.
