Aviary is a South Lamar spot that was made for catching up with an old roommate or bonding with that person you always end up next to at the gym. While you can get a full meal here, we’d focus on the wine, cheese, and oysters, and your friend’s story about the loyalty points she’s racked up with all of her work travel. And then we’d order another bottle.
