bar avignon

May 7, 2012

On Friday I had a dire craving for oysters, and decided to research some restaurants in Portland to explore. I happen to stumble upon the unsuspecting gem of Bar Avignon. Located in the Southeast district amongst tree-lined neighborhoods and eclectic storefronts, the lure of french food and good wine coming from Avignon is hard to miss. As soon as we sat down, the theme song from Mad Men came on, and I decided right then I was in love.

We started the night off with a ‘Blood & Sand’ cocktail and local oysters, followed by an interesting set of entrees. I had the charred octopus and roasted asparagus, while the always adventurous Ted jumped at the chance for crispy beef tongue with dijonnaise.  If you ever are looking for a classy and romantic bar in Portland, I would highly recommend this tucked away treasure.
