Under Construction: Sonny's

The Portland Daily Sun has published an interview with Jay “Accidental Restauranteur” Villani about 188 aand his news restaurant Sonny’s. According the article, Sonny’s is aiming to open on January 8.

“Sonny’s” — named after Villani’s eight year old son — will replace the decor left by the exiting O’Natural’s Cafe at 83 Exchange Street with more traditional environs, trying to re-create the casual energy familiar to Local 188 fans. ButVillani says the food will differ, bringing him “full circle” back to the Latin influences of his native New York City — offerings will range from Tex-Mex to South American.
