El Portal Mexican Restaurant & Grill, 228 7th Ave., South Charleston, has closed, said Bob Anderson, the city's business recruiter.
The restaurant opened in March 2011. "We hate to see them go," Anderson said. "They installed booths from New York along two walls of the dining room. It's beautiful."
Jamaica Cuisine previously occupied the space. The property owner hopes to attract a new tenant, Anderson said.
