The Joel Palmer House fills fine china with globally inspired dishes, which fuse locally produced herbs and vegetables with wild Oregon mushrooms. Amorous eaters take breaks from sweetheart staring contests to thaw benumbed tongues with warm bowls of Joe's wild-mushroom soup, a 75-year-old family recipe that combines the rich essence of pureed suillus mushrooms with creamy crème fraiche ($9). The beef stroganoff, prepared with succulent meat, wild mushrooms, and seasoned rice ($30), pleases palates, and the sautéed sea scallops, served with lotus root, wild mushroom duxelles, and a Creole pinot gris sauce ($32), fill abdominal abysses. Fortify fungus fare with a bottle of locally fermented pinot noir from a sprawling list of Oregon wines and achieve a culinary harmony unseen since the California Raisins dominated the airwaves.

Grandiose columns line the entrance of The Joel Palmer House, the colonial-style landmark in which pioneer, politician, and Dayton-founder Joel Palmer once lived, slept, and perfected the moonwalk. Inside, antique mirrors and charming wall adornments lend the cozy interior an atmosphere of old-timey elegance and intimacy, creating a romantic venue for celebrating an anniversary or popping the question with a plate of diamond-encrusted portobellos.

Customer Reviews

I've never liked mushrooms. The mushrooms in the dishes I ordered were very good and have changed my mind about liking mushrooms.

The food was terrific. A couple of items were different than I anticipated, but I put aside my expectations and was pleasantly surprised. The service was perfect. The first time I ate here, there was too much service, but they've dialed it back to just the right level.
