Not Quite Havana (South)

A lot of you have probably heard that the very popular Bar Harbor Restaurant,  Havana South is opening a 2nd spot on Wharf Street, in Portland.  The restaurant will take over the entirety of the large (7000sf) building at the end of Wharf Street at Union. Construction has progressed of the interior space for several months now and it is hoped that a soft opening will happen toward the end of June. Whenever that happens I'll be there! A look at their website, finds this statement
Havana is American fine dining with a Latin flair, great atmosphere, extensive wine list, knowledgeable staff and sophisticated menu. Seafood, vegetarian and meat dishes are flavored with intelligence and respect and change weekly, sometimes daily.
From the looks of their operation in Bar Harbor and if the food tastes as good as it looks on the website, given the sheer size of this space Havana South could create quite a splash in Portland food scene.
This looks to the main dining area from the main entry with the large bar at the far end of the building.
The main dining area will run across the middle of the space. The bar is to the right.

The far side of the dining area looking toward the kitchen
This space is directly ahead of the door and will be two smaller function rooms and overflow dining.
This space on the Union Street side of the building will be the last to open. Plans are for a retail meat locker/specialty store. It can be seen under the awnings at the right of the picture below.
