Portland, OR- After a successful first two months of offering top-notch plant-based Israeli fare in the heart of the Hosford-Abernethy neighborhood, chef Tal Caspi is bringing brunch to Aviv on July 22nd. Although the popular breakfast dish shakshuka will remain on the lunch and dinner menu, it will finally be available for breakfast alongside newly introduced challah french toast, savory falafel oatmeal, avocado harissa toast, carrot “lox” bagels, and much more. Aviv will also have an expanded brunch cocktail list, offering a zhoug bloody mary and just the right amount of bubbly.
Caspi is excited to provide Portland more opportunities to delve into his succulent Israeli-fare, as well as offer another brunch choice for the vegan community. “I’m really excited about taking classic brunch dishes and adapting them to Middle Eastern-fare,” said Caspi of his new menu.
This delicious announcement coincides with Aviv’s multi-day Grand Opening celebration, from 6-9pm Thursday, July 20th till Saturday, July 22st. On Thursday night, Aviv will transform into a lively kibbutz, offering drinks and fare from the newly introduced Happy Hour menu, as well as a live, jazzy rendition of the Fiddler on the Roof. Friday night’s traditional Shabbat Shalom multi-course chef’s feast will be serenaded by live music and Grand Opening rivalry, which concludes on Saturday night with more live music and surprises. This is an all-ages celebration.
Beginning July 22nd, brunch at Aviv will be available every Saturday and Sunday from 10 to 3pm. The Grand Opening celebration will be held at Aviv on July 20th-22nd, 6 to 9pm every night.
