Hugo’s has announced that they’re reopening for dinner as of this evening. From the release,
In renovating, our aim was to strip the space down to its roots, exposing the building’s early 19th century original tin ceiling and brick and mortar walls. We’ve entirely changed the floor plan with an open kitchen, plush booth seating, and a sprawling, wooden bar that offers diners a close up view of the inner workings of the Hugo’s kitchen.
While our kitchen remains committed to the creativity and attention to detail that has garnered Hugo’s it’s national acclaim, we are making some exciting changes: an intensified focus on local meats, seafood and foraged goods, a revamped menu format, single origin coffee’s from local roasters Tandem, and look out for large format shared meal specials.
Bourbon Portland Beer Politics has posted a set of photos taken by Zach Bowen of the newly renovated space.
Update: for details on the new menu and more pictures see this report on Maine a la Carte.
