Ate-Oh-Ate Update

At the tail end of Ben Dyer’s weekly Simpatica Dining Hall emailer, comes this update on his new Hawaiian-style plate lunch joint, Ate-Oh-Ate.

For those of you who are interested, Ate-Oh-Ate is coming along quite nicely.  We have been madly working on getting it put together and should be open late next week (like Saturday).  I will let you know for sure in next week’s email.  Thank you for your continued patience – we are all very, very excited to unleash our new baby upon the world.  I have a million things to do between now and then – wish me luck, I’m really going to need it.

spamAte-Oh-Ate will be located at 2452 E. Burnside, and will be open daily from 11am to 9pm. They now have a website, which offers a teensy preview of plates to come–promising “Teriyaki, Kal-Bi, Katsu, Loco Moco, Spam Musubi, Housemade Kimchi, Saimin and more…” along with beer and Mai-Tais. And Spam, of course. As the website explains,

Ate-Oh-Ate is brought to you by the owners of Laurelhurst Market and Simpatica Dining Hall & Catering.  Our goal is to provide you with the finest and most delicious Hawaiian Style food possible.  We use only the highest quality products, including all natural meats, fresh vegetables, real Best Foods Mayonnaise and authentic Spam (accept no substitutions!).  Feel free to dine in or take-out.
