Imperial is located in the historic Hotel Lucia in Downtown Portland, showcasing chef-owner Vitaly Paley’s renowned cooking, which helped him earn Portland Monthly’s 2012 Chef of the Year and a 2012 Empire Builder Award by Food & Wine. At Imperial, Chef Paley explores menu ideas that have historic significance and uses cooking methods and ingredients from Oregon’s diverse bounty together with Chef de Cuisine Doug Adams, who was a recent final chef contender on Bravo’s “Top Chef.” The most prominent feature of Imperial’s kitchen is the impressive wood fire grill and rotisserie that incorporates use of native hard and fruitwoods, leading to Huffington Post choosing Imperial as one of the 11 Best Barbecue Restaurants of 2013. Imperial’s cocktail program has also received accolades, with Food & Wine naming Imperial one of the Best New Bars in the U.S for 2013, and being crowned the regional winner for Food & Wine’s The People’s Best New Bars 2014.
