In a move that would make Sean Combs proud, the owners of Bintliff's American Cafe are changing the name of the wildly popular Portland spot to Bayside American Cafe. Twelve years after they bought the business from original owner Roger Bintliff, Joe and Diane Catoggio announced via press release and Facebook that "the new name, Bayside American Cafe, fits our evolving neighborhood, and adds one more personal touch to the place that's grown to be such a big part of our lives."

The Catoggio's insist that ain't nothin' changed but the name on the mail: "Our menu, style and management will remain the same. Most importantly, our incredible staff isn't going anywhere!" Touching, and also slightly Hotel California.
