Happy Memorial Day to all you zesters!! We were very excited to share today’s MMmmmonday with you because it has become one of our favorite new little hot spots in Atascadero. Avion & Claw is an awesome new wine bar just near the Carlton in little old Atown. They have a great assortment of wine, beer and even cider for sippin’ on along with some tasty bites. Chanda and I went a few weeks ago and heard about their Memorial Day backyard BBQ and we knew we had to come back for the par-tay (and even bring our hubbies). Shall we give you a tour??
Let’s start at the front door shall we? we love the use of boxes and succulents and indoor plants to create that lovely curb appeal!
Now for some details inside to make ya drool….
Loving the random subtle little “claw” prints throughout the space
And now for some yummy drinks and bites!
The Tarte Flambée is to dieeeeee for, coupled with bacon, toro creek beet greens and young gruyere all on the perfect crisp flatbread! MMMmm
Next up was the Tartine, freshly baked on a Carlton Italian loaf and topped with smoked salmon, cream cheese, and dugan radishes!
All finished off with the delectable gelato from Leo Leo in Paso and zested by Avion & Claw with their own porter reduction, browned butter, rosemary and glazed walnuts!
(And served in a cute wooden bowl to top it off!) 🙂
Oh happy day!
Then we traveled out to the patio for the Memorial Day BBQ this week, so fun!
We gobbled up some tasty BBQ chicken sliders while sipping on some Barrelhouse Stout with the hubbies!
The back patio had some great atmosphere as people enjoyed the summer weather, good tunes (Bear Market Riot), good drinks and good company! Alexandra (the owner) was workin’ it with all the drink glasses!
By the way did we tell you about the owners? They are precious, Alex and her hubby Sean Dugan named the wine bar after their story…
Sean is a pilot and….
Alexis has always had a love for dragons, hence her unique and beautiful engagement ring that is a claw holding the rock- well done Sean!
And now we get Avion & Claw, awww!
Now ready to see us and our dorky husbands work that photo booth??
Yep, I think it’s safe to saw we had a great Memorial Day weekend and are loving Atown’s newest hot spot, Avion & Claw.
