When one door closes, a burger joint opens. Or at least that’s what happened with Portofino on Main Street in Downtown, after word spread that the five year-old Italian restaurant had surreptitiously closed.
In its place is FourSixFour, a globally-inspired pub bent on delivering conceptual burger riffs from around the world. There’s a make your own option for $9 as well, plus a few other selections from the chalkboard menu behind the bar. Speaking of which, there’s also a handful of local/regional craft taps on offer, plus a growing bottle list.
Inside, Portofino’s rustic chic look has been transformed into something much more suited to the new menu and vibe. Everything is heavily industrial, with stiff chairs, a long communal table with backless stool seating, and hanging bulbs that dangle from the high ceiling.
Per their young Facebook page, hours at FourSixFour run evening only, beginning at 6 p.m. and lasting until 11 p.m. weeknights (closed Mondays). Friday and Saturday the place remains open until 1 a.m.
