Ava Gene's

Sit down on leather banquettes under pendant lights at vegetable-centric, Roman-inspired Ava Gene’s (owned by Stumptown Coffee Roasters founder Duane Sorenson). Working with at least 35 Oregonian producers (a meter counts the pounds of produce purchased locally), executive chef Joshua McFadden creates sweet-saltycrunchy combinations of celery with almonds, dates and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, and perfectly al dente farro linguine with tender, crimson-flecked borlotti beans and umamitastic bottarga.
