Next Le Pigeon Burger Popup!
Our first Le Pigeon Burger Popup was a hit, so we’re doing it again! On Friday, April 2nd from 12-6pm we’ll be grilling up 100 burgers, first come, first serve. After 15 years of serving this burger, we’re pretty attached to it. This is your first – technically second – chance to get the burger in over a year! We’ve taken over 8th Ave with tables, grills, and drinks including wines, beers, and plenty of nonalcoholic options. The burger is $25 and comes with the burger of course, a Butter Lettuce Salad, and pastry chef Matthew Ives’ cookie interpretation of Foie Gras Profiteroles. It’s burger time!
Andy’s Easter Wine Pairings Chardonnay, Un, Division Wine Co, 2019 Willamette Valley
We are very excited about Willamette Valley Chardonnay right now…over the last 10 years the category has really come into its own and the quality of the wines have never been better. Division Wines is an urban winery located in Southeast Portland, it was founded by Tom Monroe and Kate Norris after learning to make wine in Beaujolais and Burgundy. This bottling is sourced from five organically farmed vineyards spread across the Willamette Valley. It provides a snapshot into Division’s winemaking style which is one that strives for balance and a tension between ripe fruit and prominent acidity. This wine is perfect for the beginning of spring and will pair great with the crab deviled eggs and pork! It smells of sweet pears, almonds, white flowers and a touch of flinty minerality.
Pinot Noir, Sisters, Eyrie, 2017, Dundee Hills
The Willamette Valley has become internationally known for its Pinot Noir, there are now over 700 producers with dozens more propping up seemingly overnight. All of this is due to the pioneering efforts of David Lett who, in 1965, was the first to plant Pinot Noir in the Valley. His son Jason took over at the winery up David’s passing and through his passion and attention to detail, Eyrie continues to produce pure and soulful expressions of Oregon’s terroir. The Sisters vineyard was first planted in 1989 and gets its name from the three mutations-or sisters-of Pinot: Blanc, Gris and Noir. The vines are organically farmed and planted on their own rootstocks (ungrafted) in soils comprised of basalts with some granitic dust. The summer in 2017 was not nearly as warm as years prior which contributes to the elegance of this wine. The Sisters is high toned, red fruited and has lots of floral and spice notes!
