Welcome to the DaNet Russian Pop-Up Experience! Chef Paley and team have transformed Portland Penny Diner, outfitting the venue with vintage tchotchkes, Russian decorative elements from Paley’s family, artwork, and authentic music from the Motherland.

The upcoming events will feature zakuski with several types of blinis followed by two subsequent courses and a dessert. Bar Manager Lindsay Baker will create innovative drinks and cocktail pairings for the events. Guests can also purchase vodka flights, such as Russian, local or ‘infusion’ flights, the latter including apple & ginger, beet & caraway, honeyed pear & spicy pepper and black truffle infused vodka. Imperial will also offer global wine pairings with unique offerings not seen elsewhere.

Dinner will be served family style at communal tables, with one seating at 6:30pm. Cost for the Russian pop-up dinner is $75 per person plus gratuity.
