Whiskey bar — Pure Kitchen has closed, but the intimate space in the Franklin Crossing Building will reopen in mid-June as The Stihl, A Whisk(e)y Bar. New owner Jason Gartz, who purchased the space when owners Krit and Bua Dangruenrat announced plans to return to their home in Thailand, said he will serve steaks and other dishes to accompany an international selection of more than 160 whiskeys. 550 N.W. Franklin Ave., #118, Bend.
Sushi renovation — Tomo Sushi was purchased in April by Matt Davis, the former owner of Marz Planetary Bistro, and partner Lorraine Jespersen. A continuing renovation has already expanded the bar area, and the menu is evolving beyond sushi to include noodle and teriyaki dishes, behind chefs Emmerson Jespersen and Grant Miyashiro. Open 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday to Saturday; 61160 S. U.S. Highway, Suite C, Bend; 541-323-8888, www.tomo sushi.net.
