A new restaurant called Lenora (website, facebook, instagram) is under construction at 2 Portland Square in the space formerly occupied by Walter’s. Lenora will be a taco bar focusing on Mexican-inspired street food.
Rian and Jen Wyllie will be working with former partners Aaron Sanders and Max Toste from Lone Star Taco Bar and Deep Ellum in Boston. The Wyllie’s have been part of the Portland restaurant community since they moved to Maine in 2017. Rian Wylie is currently the chef at Maine Beer Company in Freeport, and was formerly the chef/partner of Lone Star and Deep Ellum.
The team anticipates opening Lenora this coming summer. You can keep track of progress for Lenora by following the restaurant’s instagram account.
