Jamison, serving “classic new American cuisine,” will open in the former Fenouil space overlooking the Pearl District’s Jamison Park.
Craig Sweitzer of Urban Works Real Estate reports that the Davis Street Tavern team of Christopher Handford and Blake Smith leased the 220-seat Fenouil space and will renovate it as their second restaurant.
The new jamison, 900 N.W. 11th St., opens in May. Its menu will emphasize locally farmed ingredients served in a fine dining atmosphere. Urban Works brokered the deal.
The Dussin Group, operators of the Old Spaghetti Factory chain, closed Fenouil nearly a year ago.
