Adjacent to Hotel Lucia’s lobby is one of the city’s hottest new restaurants: Imperial. Owned by Vitaly Paley, a legendary Portland chef, the restaurant serves a menu of new American cuisine, much of which is prepared in the huge roaring wood-fired grill that anchors the open kitchen. Choose from dishes such as salt-roasted spot prawns, duck meatballs, steak with chanterelles, roasted carrots with wild plum glaze and sticky toffee gingerbread with baked pears. In case you’d rather stick to the confines of your room, a limited menu is available for in-room service at the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel, as are five delicious flavors of locally-made Salt & Straw ice cream.
