Monday morning brought the news that longtime Northwest Portland dining fixture and canoodling spot Lucy's Table will close Tuesday, Aug. 9, after 13 years in the biz. The cozy spot at the corner of Northwest Irving Street and 21st Avenue won't stay empty for long. The Lucy's crew has announced that a second Portland outpost of Dick's Kitchen—the healthy diner project from Laughing Planet mogul Richard Satnick, will open in the space later this year after a round of remodeling.

More details, plus a list of kitchen equipment for sale, below:
