Just saw this blurb on eater.com which is only good news to those of us who live five minutes by car away:
Chefs Daniel Mondok of the temporarily shuttered Sel Gris and Andy Ricker (Pok Pok, Ping) are teaming with Kurt Huffman of ChefStable to open Foster Burger in the former home of Cava at 53rd and SE Foster this January.
The menu will be simple and inexpensive with good beef, hand cut fries, salads, milk shakes, and a full bar. The 48 seat dining room will add another 50 seats outdoor on the smoking patio to be open year-round. Huffman's ChefStable is also partners in the forthcoming Gruner, the first Chris Israel restaurant to open in Portland in 15 years. Gruner debuts in December.
While sad about the demise of Cava, this seems to be the perfect fit for that space and brings huge restaurant cred to Foster Road. Bring on the beef!!
