CAMAS — A new branch of Tommy O’s Pacific Rim Bistro will open in the historic Camas Hotel. Lackamas Magazine and the Downtown Camas Association announced the news this week in Facebook posts. The Camas location is expected to open in mid-June.
The original Tommy O’s opened in downtown Vancouver in 2002 as a successor to the Aloha Cafe, a deli operated by owner Tom Owens from 1994 to 2002. Owens opened a second restaurant in east Vancouver in 2008, but the business struggled during the recession. It closed in 2013.
An outpouring of Facebook comments greeted the return of the expected Camas restaurant.
