About the owner: Originally from Staten Island, NY - I'm a mom, restaurant owner and real-estate developer with a background in the arts. I've lived in this neighborhood since moving to Portland in 1996 when I opened a mixed-use art and performance space just around the corner from were I live and work now. I own the building that houses Yakuza and Beast restaurants and live upstairs from Yakuza with my young son. I also own DOC restaurant, located just up the street across Killingsworth. I am huge soak and steam fan and designed the Japanese garden behind Yakuza to include a hot tub, cold plunge tub and outdoor shower - a hidden gem that you'll enjoy as a guest at the Kuza Garden Cottage. I look forward to welcoming you and introducing you to this vibrant neighborhood.
Why the Owner Chose Alberta Arts District: I have lived and worked in this neighborhood since first moving to Portland in 1996. I designed and built out this building and have loved watching new restaurants join us on NE 30th & Killingsworth. It has been extremely gratifying to see the neighborhood come into its own.
