ava gene's

move this restaurant  to the top of your "places to eat in portland" queue.
it was the. best. food.  i have eaten in a very long time, and the space is impeccable- think tons of marble, custom leather everything (the banquette, bar stools and water carafes are all decked out in crimson leather), and perfect service.

 the orecchiette was a highlight of the meal, but everything we ate was fabulous, from the pane pancetta with leeks and butter at the beginning, to the panna cotta with pine cone syrup at the end.  wow.

i can't wait to go back to ava gene's!
