Two more restaurateurs have applied for licenses in downtown Portland, hoping to bring “exotic meatballs” and fast-casual Asian fare to the city.

The Portland Meatball Co. would be at 104 Exchange St., the former location of Pierre’s Electronics Store. Noah Talmatch, who also owns the Timber Steakhouse and Rotisserie next door (as well as The North Point on Silver Street), says in documents filed with the city that his new restaurant will serve lunch and dinner seven days a week, including brunch on Sunday.

The menu will include “exceptional homemade pastas, sandwiches, soup and of course, exotic meatballs and pizza.” A sample menu listed a variety of unusual meatballs that included wild pheasant with wild Maine blueberries and blueberry truffle sauce; wild boar and blue cheese with cherry drizzle; Asian pork with chilies and plum hoisin sauce; and lamb merguez and harissa sauce.

The decor, Talmatch says, will be New England-style farmhouse with booth and table seating and “a small but inviting bar.”

Hours are expected to be 11 a.m. to 1 a.m., and the target opening date is Sept. 18.

Jie “Jamie” Ming Liang of Westbrook plans to open 66S Fusion at 425 Fore St., next door to Gelato Fiasco. The quick-service Asian menu will feature sushi, teppanyaki grill, ramen noodles and an Asian meat bun.
