Interview with Ohno Cafe’s Chris Beth

I Love Portland Maine has published an interview with Chris Beth, owner of Ohno Cafe.

What inspires your menu, and do you have any personal favorites from over the years?
Chris:  Again, I am lucky to have inherited an amazing menu.  But the old saying is true: “if it ain’t broke, dont fix it.” In five years we have only added 2 menu items., and none of the other menu items have been removed.  Ohno has very loyal customers and it seems as though every person has a sandwich they can identify with.  So, the weekly specials is what gives us a change to get creative and make something different.  Most of those are born by what we feel like eating that week or items that have been really successful in the past.  The #1 is as close as what we have to a “signature sandwich.”  My personal favorite is pretty simple #4 which consists of salmon which is super fresh and smoked right here in town at Browne Trading.
