Since last August, we've known that former Boston chef Chris Gould (Uni Sashimi Bar at Clio) was planning to open a restaurant in Portland, but it wasn't until this week, when Richard Borelli of Harriman Architects appeared before Portland's Historic Preservation Board, that any more news was revealed. Borelli presented preliminary plans on behalf of Gould Restaurant LLC, owners of 414 Fore Street, on the corner of Dana Street. The 19th-century building, which fronts on Wharf Street, requires significant renovation to become a restaurant. In his paperwork, Borelli said that the "Owner intends to preserve the historic character of the building as much as possible." Here's Meredith Goad's original post on Gould's Portland restaurant plans.Tweet
