Fodor's Expert Review Imperial

$$$ Downtown Pacific Northwest Fodor's Choice

Tall concrete pillars, exposed brick and ductwork, soft overhead lighting, and rustic wood tables and floors create an industrial-chic vibe at acclaimed this buzzy restaurant inside the hip Hotel Lucia. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and serving up exemplary contemporary Pacific Northwest fare, menu highlights include Dungeness crab omelet, duck meatballs, grilled king salmon with corn puree and chanterelles, and meaty fare from the wood-fired rotisserie grill. Imperial has one of the best Downtown happy hours, and a stellar cocktail program to match; try the Konami Code with cognac, vermouth, Becherovka liqueur, framboise, and orange bitters. The chef also operates the hip and casual Portland Penny Diner, also inside the Lucia, and the luxe Headwaters restaurant in the Heathman Hotel.
