What Claire Ate: March 6th, 2015

We’re back!

The first thing I ate on Friday was a really sub-par patty melt from Whole Foods.

I ate about half.

I didn’t eat anything else until I met up with REDACTED. We were originally going to cook something at her house, but we decided to instead go to Aviary to check out their Portland Dining Month menu.

Here it is.

I ordered the chawanmushi, the short rib, and the chocolate bundino. The flavors in chawanmushi were great, but the texture was a little off-putting after a while. This is not a criticism of the quality of the dish, I’m ust kind of iffy on gelatinous textures.

The crisp peas and pear helped.

The short rib was a little dry, which was disappointing, though I did enjoy the taro puree.

Oh, we also shared a bottle of wine.

Serviceable.

After that, we walked back to REDACTED’s house, stopping to pick up a bottle of bubbly.

Already a little gone, tbh.

We proceeded to polish that bottle off while watching a documentary about champagne. Then we drank another bottle (not pictured), ate some peanuts, read each other’s tarot cards, and went to bed.

The End.
