  • SHUT AND OPEN: Chef Kevin Gibson of Evoe (and formerly of Castagna), along with Kurt Heilemann of Vinopolis, intends to open a small restaurant in the former June space at 2215 E Burnside St., next to Heart coffee. According to Heilemann, the space will “focus on Kevin’s food, the next step of what he’s doing.” Heilemann adds, however, they have yet to fully work out details for the new restaurant. >> North Williams Avenue pizza spot Oro di Napoli has closed for good. The restaurant opened this year and closed its doors in August, saying it would reopen. It never did. Instead, former Paccini owner Jason Kallingal will be taking over the place’s imported wood-fired oven and serving up fresh-fired pizza by the slice, after a remodel. >> John Esbeck of farmers market staple C’est Si Bon! has applied to revive the Kir space at 22 SE 7th Ave. as a wine bar and creperie.
  • AS TEARS GO BY: Singer Fiona Apple ended a show in tears at Portland’s Newmark Theatre on Oct. 3 after a fan in the balcony yelled, “Get healthy, we want to see you in 10 years!” and “I saw you 20 years ago, and you were beautiful,” presumably in reference to Apple’s thin figure. Apple spoke about the incident to Pitchfork, saying, “That’s just rude, and I don’t want her there anymore because it’s my stage, you know? I got very angry.... I need to be able to do my job.” She added, “What makes me unhealthy and puts me in danger is that kind of scrutiny itself. It’s the same as being bullied at school, and just because you’re getting older, it doesn’t mean that you aren’t hurt by it. You could make anybody cry if you told them that they’re ugly.”
  • RED HOT FRANK’S: Local favorite Frank’s Noodle House got a visit from the Man in the Douchey Flame Shirt last May, and will be featured on the Food Network program Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on Oct. 21. Noodle House chef-owner Frank Fong has been slinging noodles at Frank’s since 2009, when he left Beaverton’s Du Kuh Bee restaurant. On the restaurant’s Facebook page, Frank’s asked diners to “join us in celebrating this great event.” Portland has been an extremely popular destination for Guy Fieri’s show: Thirteen other Portland restaurants have been featured, including Bunk Sandwiches, Pok Pok (considered a dive, apparently), Pine State Biscuits, Otto’s Sausage, Podnah’s Pit and the PDX 671 food cart. As a side note, a criminal trial began Oct. 4 for a California teen accused of stealing Fieri’s Lamborghini.
  • ON THE WEB: We’ve got a post about an Estacada man making kopi luwak coffee using the human digestive tract instead of a civet cat’s, and a live review of last Friday’s Gary Clark Jr. show. Also look for John Locanthi’s preview of the Oregon Ducks’ football game against the Washington Huskies and, later, his taunts about yet another Ducks blowout.
