about paley's place

Since opening in 1995, Paley’s Place Bistro & Bar remains a Nob Hill destination -- a pioneering restaurant in Portland’s culinary landscape, serving regional fare rooted in the bounty of the Pacific Northwest. Set in a warm and inviting Victorian home, the menu at Paley’s Place highlights sustainable and seasonal ingredients with French and Russian influences. 

James Beard Award-winning chef Vitaly Paley helms the kitchen, while his wife, Kimberly Paley, oversees the front of the house. Together, they have created a welcoming ambiance that caters to casual and special occasions alike.

As a nod to Chef Vitaly Paley’s Russian heritage, Paley’s Place hosts an engaging Dumplings and Vodka night on a few Monday evenings out of the year. Featuring a variety of dumplings, local and eastern European vodkas, Chef Paley shares his experiences of growing up in Soviet Union and how food can revive memory and nostalgia.
