BLINIS, VODKA, AND CAVIAR, OH MY!: CHEF VITALY PALEY LAUNCHES DANET, THE MONTHLY 5-COURSE RUSSIAN POP-UP STARTING IN JUNE
Starting the Middle of June, Imperial and Portland Penny Diner Will Host DaNet, A Monthly 5-Course Russian Pop-up Dinner at Portland Penny Diner
Get ready for a new monthly dinner! Imperial and Portland Penny Diner’s first Friday Night Pop-up Blini and Vodka Bar was such a success, that they are excited to announce that the pop-up will continue. This time, however, they will expand and improve the pop-up to offer an exclusive 5-course Russian dinner called DaNet. Starting June 12th, DaNet will return to Portland Penny Diner and continue popping up every second Thursday of the month, on July 10th and August 14th.
The night will feature five courses, with the first course mirroring the Pop-up Blini and Vodka Bar. Two different blinis—a traditional version and a potato version—will be served family style with a number of toppings, including house made caviar, sour cream, butter, jam, smoked fish and Chef Vitaly Paley’s family recipes, including fish under carrot marinade and garlic cheese spread.
Bar Manager Brandon Wise will offer a focused drink and vodka list, along with wine pairings, available for additional purchase. Guests can expect to enjoy infused vodkas such as Apple & Ginger Vodka, Beet & Carraway Vodka, Honeyed Pear & Spicy Pepper Vodka, and Black Truffle Vodka.
The courses will be served family style at communal tables, with one seating at 6:30pm. Cost for the 5-course Russian pop-up dinner is $65 per person plus gratuity. Bartender Tony Guardian, aka DJ Expensive Taste, will be spinning a mix of psych, hip-hop, pop, traditional and old world romance music at the event, all of Slavic descent.
To make a reservation for DaNet, please call Imperial at (503) 228-7222.
