On Friday news hit that Portland’s much-loved Thai restaurant Pok Pok will be opening an outpost on Columbia Street. The restaurant will be located at 127 Columbia Street, in the space that housed Pit Stop and, more recently, 5 Burro Cafe. Here’s what the owners of Pok Pok have to say about the opening: “This is another great neighborhood, quiet and full of families, parks, low key businesses with a view of the Manhattan skyline across the water. Pok Pok Ny has a tiny dining room and a big outdoor seating area, kind of like Pok Pok PDX.” It’s slated to open within the next few months.
