Sen Yai

  • 3384 SE Division St Portland OR 97202
  • Andy Ricker (Chef and Owner)

Noted Portland chef Andy Ricker told the Business Journal late last month that a bevy of factors — Oregon’s higher minimum wage and new sick leave laws among them — might force him to close as many as three restaurants. That forecast came to mind on Thursday when Ricker, as reported by Portland Monthly, revealed he’ll shutter the noodle spot Sen Yai. …

Ricker, in an interview published April 8, said that the higher minimum wage — in Portland, it’ll rise to $15 by 2022 — along with issues related to shared tipping pools and the citywide sick leave policy will wreak havoc on Portland’s food purveyors.
