Indications have been piling up all week but this afternoon the Press Herald received confirmation that Havana South has gone out of business.
Michael Boland, who opened the restaurant with his wife, Deirdre Swords, in 2010, confirmed the closure today in an email to the Portland Press Herald that was also signed by chef Cassady Pappas. The restaurant’s last day of business was New Year’s Eve.
“We worked long and hard, but in the end it just wasn’t possible to continue financially,” the email read.
One comment on “Havana South Closed”
Sad to see any place close, but it was clear Havana South just couldn’t keep up with the quality of other restaurants in Portland. Here’s hoping someone else picks up the location and gives it another try.
