PORTLAND | Imperial Portland is a collaboration between acclaimed chef Vitaly Paley and chef Ben Bettinger. It offers diners simple food that’s inspired by warm and primitive burning campfires and the open spaces of the Pacific Northwest. To achieve this, produce seasonal and sourced locally, and cooked using a custom-made wood fired grill. There’s a lot to like on the menu, which changes daily depending on what’s fresh and what’s inspiring the chefs. For brunch try the wonderfully dense yet somehow fluffy Imperial French toast. When we visited the french toast was a riff on cinnamon crunch breakfast cereal, but you might find it topped with lemon curd, seasonal berries, or whatever else the chefs fancy. Another must try dish is the fried chicken. Some say that that fried chicken at Imperial, along with the house made barrel aged hot sauce, is some of the best in Portland and, after biting into the crunchy exterior followed by the tender flavoursome meat, we can see where this reputation comes from.

It’s not just about the food at Imperial either. The restaurant’s bar program is headed up by drinks maestro Brandon Wise, who draws inspiration from the chefs to create drinks which are “engaging and experiential” and compliment the food on the menu. Lovers of good wine and craft beer are catered to as well, with a thought out selection of local drops and more from further away.

It’s simple food and drinks done well, that lets the quality of the produce shine in a casual space with friendly service. Come for the acclaimed fried chicken and cocktails and stay for everything else – you won’t be disappointed.

The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
