The King's Head, a new restaurant and bar at 254 Commercial Street in the Pierce Atwood building on Portland's Merrill Wharf, is soft launching with light food today, over half a year later than targeted. Its official opening is planned for tomorrow, Saturday, June 7. Details about the venture, from co-owners Rick Binet--of renowned craft beer bar Blackback Pub & Flyshop in Waterbury, VT--and Justin O'Connor, have been surprisingly scarce, but are now trickling in from a recently-created Facebook page.
The restaurant should have 78 seats. Official hours are not yet posted, nor is the time frame for today's soft opening; one source suggests Saturday's official opening will be at 4 p.m. We will update as more information becomes available.
