Aviary

Friday night Shaun and I called an audible (and Nick Kokonas) and snagged a last min reso for the Aviary.

I had been a few times when it first opened, but hadn’t been in a long time so I was excited to see how the menu had evolved.

While you’re not banned from taking pics there, to me it seems tacky to whip out your i phone so I refrained from snapping any pics.

The “bites” are the most intense burst of flavor you’ll ever put in your mouth. Bold statement but really true. The guacamole bite tasted like a taco- it’s some full on Willy Wonka ish.

I also had the bowl of “chips”which is a large kitchen bowl filled with freezedried? creations. I can’t do it justice- you just have to go and order it.

My favorite cocktail “The Blueberry” had been mixed up and is now called “The Chai” and I was pumped to hear that it was infused with Rare Tea Cellar’s chai tea.

I love the room and the vibe in there, it feels like you really are escaping the city and they encourage you to sit on the same side of the table on the couches- love that.

We played the game *guess what their situation is*- do you guys ever do that? Look at the couple at the table text to you and guess if they’re on a first date, dating, friends, married, etc? Try it- it’s kinda fun.

With the whole NATO takeover about to happen, I wouldn’t be surprised if some World leaders are sipping those very same cocktails this week. But Nick and Grant would never tell- which is part of what makes that place so special.
