Chefs Michael Williams and Donovyn Collins are putting the place together on the food end, and artists Mike McKennedy and John Black are in charge of the design. Hours will be 9am to 10pm every day and you can start to get liquored up at 4pm. They will also have one vintage arcade game there on site.

UPDATE 8/29/19: Michael Russell at The Oregonian has more details—Black Seed Burger Cult will offer burgers, fried chicken and breakfast sandwiches; along with the meats there will be vegan and gluten free options as well.
