Birch Shambaugh, Woodford F&B

Birch Shambaugh and Fayth Preyer are the husband-and-wife team behind Woodford Food and Beverage, a neighborhood bar and restaurant in Portland. The two had dreamed of bringing the vitality of a neighborhood eatery to the former Valle’s Steakhouse in the center of Woodfords Corner. Now open for nearly two years, Woodford Food and Beverage continues to play a role in the dynamic off-peninsula hospitality landscape. As local residents and parents of a pair of young children, they are proud to contribute to that vitality by bringing another quality dining option to the neighborhood they call home.
