Under Construction: SPT 2.0, The Cafe, Aurora@The Museum, Taco Escobarr

The agenda for Monday’s City Council meeting is online and with it the liquor license applications for several restaurants under development:

  • SPT 2.0 is described by owner David Cram as a “fine dining restaurant and lounge”. Cram also owns the Spring Point Tavern in Scarborough hence the SPT in the name of his new venture. See page 62 of the agenda for a look at their draft menu.
  • The reincarnation of the Cafe at Pats is now slated to be named simply The Cafe. The kitchen will be under the direction of the original chef Greg Gilman. See page 77 of the agenda for a look at their draft menu.
  • Aurora Provisions will be taking over management of the Portland Museum of Art cafe. See page 101 of the agenda for a look at their draft menu.
  • The owners of Nosh have submitted paperwork for their second restaurant Taco Escobarr. The  “latin inspired taqueria and cocktail lounge” will be located across the street from Nosh. The draft menu (page 121) includes a 2.2 pound burrito called The Kilo.
