PORTLAND, OREGON — Bar King, the restaurant from former Momofuku chef Shaun King and his wife Jamie, closed after nine months in business. King left Las Vegas to open the restaurant that opened a week before Oregon closed restaurants to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The Kings offered takeout initially, and later meal kits, then a menu of noodle soups and barbecue. An attached bakery closes in January. [Oregon Live]
