Jeffersonville restaurant The Portage House, 117 E Riverside Dr, changed ownership over the weekend as one of the previous owners Paul Skulas continues work on his new concept, Couvillion, in the former Finn’s space at the Germantown Lofts. Doers Restaurant Group, which Skulas was an investor in, decided to sell Portage House after Skulas started work on his new project. The group still owns Parlor Pizza in Jeffersonville, 131 W Chestnut St.
Chef Paul Skulas moved to the Louisville area after growing up in Mississippi and going to culinary school in North Carolina. He’s been doing well the last year and a half with his first restaurant, the Portage House in Jeffersonville, but he’s always loved the traditions and styles of the deep south, and that’s what he’s bringing to the space formerly occupied by Finn’s in Germantown at 1318 McHenry St. on the Germantown Mill Lofts property.
