When coronavirus restrictions began to ease earlier this summer, some restaurants and bars were able to use Portland streets for outdoor dining. But as Oregonians brace for the winter, restaurants will have to adapt to the bad weather or make do with limited indoor seating. We check in with Naomi Pomeroy, chef and owner of Beast and Expatriate, and Tom O’Leary, owner of T.C. O’Leary’s. They tell us how business has been so far, and what restaurants still need to survive.
