A couple articles we recently ran caused some confusion that we'd like to clear up. As you may have seen, we misreported that El Jimador was closing. This is not true - instead, the Mexican restaurant has changed its hours from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. daily and changed up the menu to offer more upscale fare.
Secondly, we understand a few people were confused over the recent article we ran about Spork's pop-up restaurant in the Café Sintra space. Apparently, the article caused some uncertainty as to whether or not Café Sintra
is still open. Sintra lovers need not worry - the café isn't going anywhere.
Sintra, the popular Portuguese breakfast and lunch spot, did not close
. Instead, the restaurant just lent its space to Spork for two nights during dinner hours. We explained this in our article, which you can read here
. Since pop-up restaurants are a relatively new concept and the Spork pop-up was a first for Bend, we understand the confusion. But please, don't stop going to Sintra. They're still open and serving the best linguiça in town.
