Portrait House to take on the Nile menu but keep Portrait House name

Pizza and burger joint turning Ethiopian.

For some of you this might be old news but for those that missed it Richmond Magazine is reporting of changes afoot at the Portrait House.

Nathan, Yosef and Benyam Teklemariam, the brothers behind the longtime, VCU-centric Nile Ethiopian Restaurant are teaming up with Hamooda Shami of New York Deli to revamp Portrait House in Carytown. Shami will run the bar program at the rebooted restaurant, which will retain the name Portrait House,* while the Teklemariam family will manage the kitchen.
