Port Fonda hosted its second soft opening on June 27, 2012 with a focus on appetizers and cocktails. The full menu will be available in early July. Patrick Ryan, Jamie Davila, and collaborators such as The Utilitarian Workshop created a magical space that has character and personality derived from the use of materials, strong imagery, an upbeat soundtrack, and well-executed design.

The food is great and the drinks are amazing. Can’t wait to try more. If you haven’t already, find Port Fonda on Facebook.

Enough words. Let the eyes feast.

I love details like the name of this cactus is printed on the container as if it were a botanical garden exhibit. Thoughtful, understated.
