We were recently commissioned by Aviary to create custom cork presenters to be used during their wine service. This is what we developed.
About Aviary: Located in the Alberta Arts District of Northeast Portland, Aviary presents an inventive and eclectic menu of small and large plates, boasting cuisine that applies classic French techniques to exotic Eastern flavors and the freshest ingredients of the season. The cocktail menu puts creative, culinary-inspired twists on classic favorites, drawing inspiration from the kitchen and the wine list presents carefully chosen pairings for the menu, offered by the bottle or the glass.
The restaurant setting combines urban industrial design with local art, reclaimed wood and locally crafted lighting and features a chef’s counter, 18-seat private dining area, and a seasonal patio beside their vegetable garden.
Owner and Chef Sarah Pliner’s dedication to clean flavors and disciplined methods is inspired by decades of cooking experience in New York and Portland in restaurants such as Alain Ducasse at the Essex House, Aquavit, Aldea, Socialista, and The Heathman Restaurant and Bar in Portland.
