Chef and Owner Christopher Czarnecki of Dayton, Oregon’s Joel Palmer House recently announced that the adjacent carriage house building will soon be a covered, outdoor dining area for the restaurant. Renovations will begin in April 2014 to allow the Joel Palmer House to serve more delighted guests with mushroom-themed courses and Oregon wine.
Due to the fickle spring and fall climates, outdoor dining areas in Oregon often go unused for fear of rain. Upon completion of the covered seating area, Joel Palmer House guests will soon be able to enjoy outdoor dining in a dry, warm, comfortable environment.
Plans for additional improvements include an outdoor bar, walk-in cooler, and a secondary kitchen. These exciting renovations will further the Joel Palmer House’s ability to accommodate foodies and wine-lovers as a world-class destination restaurant and special event space in Oregon wine country.
The Joel Palmer House’s innovative and exciting menu features choice local produce, wild mushrooms and Oregon truffles. Chef Christopher Czarnecki and family strive to incorporate seasonal ingredients and use many locally grown vegetables, including many from their own on-site garden. Chef Christopher Czarnecki has created a tantalizing, creative menu that marries perfectly with the world renowned Pinot Noir of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Of note, the Joel Palmer House ranks as one of Oregon’s finest historic homes and is on the National Register of Historic Places and the Oregon Historic Register. Built in 1857, the house is Dayton’s oldest standing structure. When weather permits, guests can enjoy their dinner on our outdoor patio, soaking in the last rays of sunshine in the heart of Oregon Wine Country.
