The cuisine at Dayton’s Joel Palmer House is inspired by the exotic mushrooms and truffles the staff collect themselves to augment the mostly locally-sourced cuisine.
Owner and fourth-generation chef Chris Czarnecki says, “Our cooking revolves around wild mushrooms and truffles which we gather ourselves and with friends. We have always endeavored to obtain locally raised ingredients in our cooking, and we use many locally produced greens, herbs, and vegetables, many of which come from our own culinary garden. We frequently draw inspiration from the cuisines of Mexico, China, Thailand, Poland, and India, so we call our cooking, “freestyle”. Of course, we work hard to create dishes that complement the glorious wines of Oregon, especially Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Chardonnay.”
Open Tuesday to Saturday from 5 until 9.
