‘belly’ opened this month in the Fremont Building (Fremont & MLK), in the space formerly occupied by Terroir. The Oregonian quotes one of the co-owners (without specifying which one), Cameron and Linda Addy, thus: “We wanted to give it a lived-in feel,” Addy says. “We decorated the space as if it were our home and we were having Portland over for a dinner party.”
belly’s menu (available on belly’s website) is rather meat-heavy, so it’s unlikely that I’ll be stopping by other than on one of my very occasional meat-eating days, but I did stop in and introduce myslf to co-owner Linda Addy. She told me that she hopes to work with the owners of Alu in hopes of stirring up some neighborhood-themed cross-promotion.
