In the most predictable news of all time, Sebastian’s has closed and there are big for lease signs up in the window. I called this when they opened, that they would not make it one year.
This has nothing to do with the owners or the workers. It is the quirky Portland dining scene. You almost have to own another successful restaurant before opening a new one here. If not, it’s gotta be different enough to attract the attention of the foodies and hipsters, like a Schulte and Herr.
Some restaurant opening up in the old port with some guy’s first name was never going to make it. It’s almost like Plush and them closed at the same time. Two obvious endings sadly. People need to check the vibe of the city and ask around before they set up shop.
I’m gonna take it personal again if you don’t add it being closed. Hard hitting on the ground info
That space, like Plush, suffers from being in a bad location. Very few folks are on the part of Middle Street at night looking for a place to eat. Oh, they’re down on Commercial Street, a very short walk away, but they don’t veer off and go into Boothby Square.
Nick, I’m chasing down a few details before posting about it.
