Ava Gene's

Bar, Italian
3377 SE Division

Ava Gene's—crowned Portland Monthly's 2013 Restaurant of the Year, and rated the fifth best new restaurant in America by Bon Appétit—have been elected the best in one of the country's top restaurant markets. Do they rep us well? Are they still earning it? I was surprised to find so many chinks in the armor here, yet also to be so swept away by the ride. If they can rein in the quality control, Ava Gene's might, in my experience, be worthy of those accolades. CHRIS ONSTAD
