Reservations Required . Call Aviary at 503.287.2400 to Reserve!
We are excited to partner with Aviary for a special five-course Winemaker's Dinner featuring Jesse Skiles of Fausse Piste. We've quickly become big fans of Jesse's wines and are excited he's decided to dedicate himself full-time to winemaking after years spent as the house chef at Owen Roe. Jesse and the Dynamic Trio in the Aviary kitchen have come up with a multi-course meal that will showcase his current releases. The tasty menu is as follows:
Chilled Zucchini Soup (almond milk, serrano ham, grapes, croutons)
Spice-cured Salmon (fennel, mandarin orange, american caviar)
Rainbow Trout (pea shoots, mojama, pickled sprouts, lemon balm
Crispy Pig Ear (coconut rice, chinese sausage, avocado)
Frozen Yogurt (strawberries, rhubarb, basil, butter cookie)
The wines will include Viognier, Colluvium Blanc, a couple of Syrahs and perhaps another treat. To join this intimate group of 12 people in Aviary's new private dining area, please call Aviary directly at 503.287.2400 for reservations. The cost of the dinner is $75 including food, wine & gratuity.
