Add another restaurant to the Old Port, as the former site of O’Naturals Portland will soon be occupied again as a new restaurant, Sonny’s, graces the 83 Exchange Street location. Named for the owner, Jay Villani’s son, Sonny’s menu will feature Tex-Mex and South American dishes.
Sonny’s plans to open on Friday, January 8, and I wish them great success. One would imagine they will do just fine with Walter’s having moved from Exchange Street to Portland Square, and the fact Villani already has done well and established a following with his current restaurant, Local 188. Perhaps we will see some Mediterranean influence from Local 188 at Sonny’s.
