Hot on the heels of his just-opened Imperial Restaurant—chef Vitaly Paley's first new venture after debuting Paley's Place in 1995—comes the award-winning chef's spin on casual fare: the Portland Penny Diner. Dishing up fry bread sandwiches, grab-and-go breakfast nosh, and throw-back soda fountain cocktails for the downtown set, the Portland Penny Diner is set to show another side of the lauded farm-to-table chef and his team. Paley is once again joined by executive chef Benjamin Bettinger and barman Brandon Wise, who will all be doing double-duty at the new diner and at Imperial (which sits just across the lobby of SW Broadway's Hotel Lucia).
