Little Giant (facebook, instagram) owners Andrew and Briana Volk have released information on the management team that will be running their 60-seat West End restaurant which is slated to open in mid-June.
- Rian Wyllie (instagram) will lead the kitchen at Little Giant. Wyllie was the Executive Chef of Deep Ellum and Lone Star Taco Bar in Boston for the past ten years.
- Darcy Brennan Poor will be leading the bakery/pastry program. A Portland resident, she studied at the Institute of Culinary Education in Manhattan. In NYC she worked at Runner and Stone in Brooklyn, a retail bakery and restaurant that specializes in naturally leavened breads, viennoiserie pastries, and desserts.
- Max Overstrom-Coleman (instagram) will be the bar manager at Little Giant. He has more than twenty years in the hospitality industry.
The restaurant is located at the intersection of Danforth and Clark Streets. Back in December it was named to Imbibe Magazine’s 2017 class of ‘Imbibe 75′.
The menu for Little Giant “will focus on Continental European cuisine with a New England influence” and the bar program “will bring together the influences of European cafe culture and well-made cocktails to Portland’s West End.”
