Chef Andy Arndt and the friendly crew at Aquariva (at the Avalon Hotel on Macadam) are hosting me for a casual tasting tomorrow, Wednesday, starting at 5pm. If you've never checked out this spot, this is a nice opportunity. It's a beautiful room on a quiet stretch of the Willamette. The kitchen is focused on regional Italian dishes and locally sourced ingredients. Chef Arndt does a daily fresh sheet complete with wine pairings. Hope you can make it.
