Ned Ludd

A friend sent me this post from Eater Portland.

One of Portland’s leaders in the hyper-local movement, Ned Ludd officially announced its closure in September. “Bittersweet to say goodbye to the last 13 years of wood fired fun, farm driven fare and all the culinary adventures this little space on MLK brought me,” owner and chef Jason French wrote in an Instagram post. “I’m the man I want to be, the husband and father I’ve imagined since my youth and the chef I’ve dreamed of since 1986.”

I was sad to learn that another unique and Portland restaurant had closed. Locally sourced food, an involved owner and chef, Ned Ludd had a presence and a story as well as excellent food beautifully served.

My friends and I miss Ned Ludd.

  1. My heart is sad for you. Life continues to bring changes to us all in every way. Memories are precious keepsakes but I understand how the loss of this unique and special place can cut deeply. Blessings as you travel onwards every day. May surprises of Joy too ever lie ahead.

    1. Thank you Faye. These times can feel very sad and challenging. There are many joys and blessings still to treasure. My family, my friends and especially the joy of my grandchildren. Blessings to you & your family, Lori


    1. We have a huge industrial food industry supported by tax incentives & tax breaks that make it hard for smaller restaurants to compete. Thank you Mark for reading & commenting. I hope you and your family are well.

      1. Yes Lori, thank you. All are well ‘down under’ and appreciating spring and some warmth after a wet time. And I do feel you with those industrial (unfeeling), monsters that are cardboard cutouts and taste like them as well. Regardless I can feel your heart compassing another community place and taking your trade there accordingly. Good luck and happy adventures with it 😀❤️🙏🏽
