Montelupo, the popular Kerns neighborhood Italian restaurant, will expand with a new market for Italian pantry goods, focaccia sandwiches and Roman-style pizza, opening as soon as August. According to Montelupo’s Adam Berger, the idea for the market came together quickly this summer, after Portland restaurateur Micah Camden reached out about taking over his former Baes Chicken location in Sellwood-Moreland.

As with the original Montelupo, the new market — I’ve been calling it “Monte-2-po” in my head — will feature imported goods, beer, wine, to-go cocktails, olive oils, tinned fish and take-and-bake pastas. It will open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily in the Southeast Bybee Boulevard storefront sandwiched between PDX Sliders and Oaks Bottom Public House.
