Head over to Division Street in Southeast Portland and enjoy a wonderful meal at Ava Gene's. It's rustic Italian crafted from local pacific northwest produce and meat. The interior is classy, modern, and cozy with timeless touches. Choose from the menu of cured meats, fine cheeses, bread, fried appetizers, greens, pasta & grains, meat & seafood, and dessert...all in Italian! The wait staff can help with questions and they always have recommendations. Don't forget the regional Italian wine list and creative cocktail menu to round off the dining experience. Ava Gene's won #5 top new restaurant in America by Bon Appetite magazine in 2013, so it's definitely a hot spot.
