Recently, a foodie friend of mine suggested we dine at Aviary, a relatively new (and adventurous) restaurant in the Alberta Arts District.
On that particular evening , a percentage of the restaurants’ profits were donated to support Japan earthquake relief efforts. That was an important draw – not to mention the Oxtail Croquettes and the Crispy Pig Ear.
But I must confess, the real reason I wanted to go is I had heard our beloved Hood was prominently displayed in Aviary’s industrial-chic dining room.
And indeed it was! This particular Hood featured the clear globe, and looked positively stunning suspended above the simple-yet-elegant table setting. No wonder it won This Old House Magazine’s Lighting Product of the Year for 2010.
More evidence that for restaurant folk, good taste often extends beyond one’s palette.
