Chef Vitaly Paley and the Imperial Portland Food Adventures Experience
This event takes place in the Imperial private banquet room at the Hotel Lucia.  Portland Food Adventures brings you the special opportunity to get to meet and get to know Chef Paley serving up the best from his kitchen at the newly crowned must-visit Imperial, Chef Paley's new restaurant at the Hotel Lucia.  Along with Ben Bettinger, formerly of Paley's Place and Beaker & Flask, and his better half, wife and partner Kimberly, the trio and their staff will present an Imperial feast in all its glory.  We will begin the evening next door at the brand new Portland Penny Diner and foray into Imperial's private event room.  

From Chef Vitaly's own words, when describing Imperial in a recent interview in AboutFace Magazine:

We're after our American heritage foods here. We're after open spaces of the Pacific northwest and the campfires. So that's kind of the feel in general, but a lot of the food's going to come from the wood-fired grill, and the wood-fired rotisserie, and it's going to be American influenced. You know, from the beginning to end. I spent a little bit of time at the Oregon Historical Society, and looked at some of what's been around since the 1900's. We're after some of the wording that they used in their menus. Some of the words they used to describe, some of the foods... some of the ideas that have either gone by the wayside or were forgotten. Some of the techniques that were exploring from that era as well, with a modern sensibility.

A minimum of six courses, wine pairings, tip and .... THIS, below:

As with any other Portland Food Adventure, Chef Paley will talk about his favorite hangs in our fair city, and send you on your way with gift certificates to try them-- Wildwood, Autentica and Grilled Cheese Grill are three of the places you'll get to visit with your included gift certificate.

Multiple food experiences for the price of one.   It really is a great value!
