Free Foie Gras Bao at Aviary Today | Beat the Line for Bowery Bagels' Pączki

When Chipotle closes stores for food-safety training next Monday, competitor chain, Freshii, will offer half-off menu items.


NORTHEAST—Apparently we live in a wonderful world where foie gras is free. Today, chef Sarah Pliner, 2015 James Beard nominee for Best Chef Northwest, is giving away her iconic foie gras bao, as well as a vegetarian version, in celebration of Aviary's fifth year in business. The restaurant is open 5 to 10 p.m., and it'd probably be wise to make a reservation by calling 503-287-2400. [EaterWire]

NORTHWEST—Last year when Bowery Bagels sold pączki in honor of Fat Tuesday, the limited-edition jelly-doughnut-like pastries caused lines around the block so long that this year, Bowery Bagels has changed the game: You can now beat the lines by pre-ordering your pączki. You just have to place your order by 4 p.m., February 5. [EaterWire]

PORTLAND—Chipotle is closing all of its stores for a few hours next Monday, February 8, to train its employees in food safety (the extra training comes in the wake of numerous diners getting sick across the country), and the Canadian franchise, Freshiiis trying to lure customers to their side of the fast-casual Mexican food world with half-off menu items. Just visit a Freshii next Monday to find a selection of half-priced dishes, like salad bowls, burritos, and wraps. [NYTimes]
