Restaurateur Dwayne Beliakoff and partner have decided to pull the plug on Roux, their Cajun restaurant in North Portland.
According to Dwayne, he felt like he either needed to reinvent the space as a different type of restaurant or pull the plug. “Since the bills are paid, we felt like it was a good time to re-focus and go a different direction”.
At this point, he is going to be working on Violetta at Director Park, a small venture in the new public square behind Fox Tower, along with a coffee shop on the lobby of the new tower going up on Stark St. behind Jake’s Famous Crawfish.
Dwayne says Violetta will feature small plates, with the goal of having nothing over $12.00, with hopes to post most items in the middle of that range.
The cafe will be open all day, with a wide selection of items like breakfast sandwiches, warm breakfast cereals hot and cold sandwiches, salads, burgers, franks, etc. They will also have a nice selection of frozen desserts and treats. Director’s Park officially opens September 24th. If all goes according to plan, Violetta will open the same day.
