As November washes away into December, and the urge to hibernate sets in, we seek cozy spaces and comforting dishes to fill our bellies with warmth. In the gourmand’s utopia on Division Street in Southeast Portland, Ava Gene’s is just the spot to linger for awhile.
Owner and Chef Joshua McFadden has created a rustic and simple menu filled with vegetables and pastas that pay respect to the bounty of producers, farmers and ranchers of the Pacific Northwest.
Milled, extruded, rolled and cut in house, the pastas at Ava Gene’s are an irresistible adventure in a textural landscape of weightlessness packed with delectable flavor.
Make a reservation and visit Ava Gene’s soon. xox
