New Old Port Pizzeria

The Press Herald reports that Joshua Miranda will be renovating the former Lupita’s space and launching a pizzeria. He’ll be partnering in the project with two of his Via Vecchia team—Mark Hibbard and Mitchell Ryan—on the new restaurant.

The yet-to-be-named pizzeria will be located at 15 Exchange St., in the former Lupita’s Taqueria, and will sell New York-style pizza by the slice and foccacia-based sandwiches along with pre-bottled cocktails, beer and wine, though it won’t have a bar.

The pizzeria will be located at 15 Exchange Street in the space that longtime Portland residents will remember as the original location of Walter’s.
