Welcome to paley's Place

Paley’s Place offers Pacific Northwest Bistro Fare using local & sustainable seasonal products, served in the warm and inviting setting of a Victorian home. As the 2005 winner of the James Beard Foundation Award for Best Chef Northwest and recent victor on Food Network’s popular series Iron Chef America, Vitaly Paley creates seasonal menus from the bounty of the Northwest – fresh ingredients supplied by local farmers, growers and purveyors – with Southern French and Northern Italian influences. Co-owner Kimberly Paley oversees the front of the house, and together with Restaurant Manager Joshua Link, curates the list of wines featuring an extensive selection of Oregon Pinot Noir. The weekly “Wine Wednesday” tasting takes a more global approach to wine tasting with wine flights available from around the world.
