davenportscallopsChef Kevin Gibson’s new East Burnside restaurant, formerly home to June, allows him a far roomier setting in which to craft his simple, impeccable supper fare. Evoe devotees will miss the intimacy of sitting 12 inches from Gibson’s knife skills, but the tradeoff is that in lieu of Evoe’s 7pm closing time, you can eat his grilled beef heart with black olive salsa, seafood chowder, and perfectly seared scallops and duck breast all the way up until bedtime. A full dessert menu remains elusive, but fortunately, Pix Patisserie is right next door, so sweet teeth should plan on a progressive dinner.
