Cyril’s at Clay Pigeon Winery
You know how I love finding the hidden gems? Well, I feel like I just found another one. Fortunately for me someone told me about this place and met me there. Had they not, I would have not found it. Beautiful place, great concept and, for all you wine lovers out there, it’s an urban winery.
They have a great menu with lots of great choices. Their specialty, aside from wine, is cheese. So the grilled cheese sandwiches will contain cheeses you may not have heard of, like Raclette. I am not completely sure what it is, but it was great. They also used it in their Mac n Cheese.
On top of their great menu, Cyril’s at Clay Pigeon Winery is introducing their all new three-course lunch prix fixe lunch menu to Portlanders. It will be offered weekly at their small-scale urban winery and tasting room along Portland’s Eastside Industrial Corridor. The Fixe, the seasonal & weekly rotating multi-course lunch, includes a salad, entrée and either a house made dessert or lunch time pour of wine or beer.
With the menu changing weekly based on seasonal and local availability of produce, pricing for The Fixe can range between $14 to $18. With options like Pork Empanadas & Winter Vegetable Cole Slaw, and Winter Greens Tart with Seedy Spinach Salad, it’s the perfect way to sample Cyril’s approach to fresh, local, organic, seasonable and sustainable dining. The Fixe is available Monday through Friday.
Here is THE FIXE for February 3- 7th, for just $14 as an example::
A Kati roll- Indian potatoes, pickled beets, spinach, raita, and coriander mint coconut chutney, bundled in house made naan- served with tangy cabbage slaw and your choice of either:
A lunchtime pour of Breakside Brewing’s Pilsner or Coconut rice pudding with orange and ginger.
Clay Pigeon Winery is an urban winery producing wines with Oregon Pinot Noir and Syrah grapes. Cyril’s is the gathering place, tasting room, and retail shop set against the backdrop of the winery. Joining a burgeoning urban wine trial through Portland, Cyril’s at Clay Pigeon Winery offers a curated collection on wines, wine-friendly bites, four rotating taps from our favorite brewers in Portland and beyond, as well as a tap of Kombucha.
I tried Kombucha for the very first time here and loved it. I also love that they have growlers there and you can fill your growler with beer or Kombucha. Don’t forget to get some cheese to go while you are there. This place has it all.
Once you are in the door you might see the space off to the side and realize it’s a great space to rent for an event. Lucky for you they do that too. A winery, a cheese shop, a great place to dine and a space for your event. I guess I should also point out that they have a great summer time patio area. Lots of reasons to visit this place.
