Portland's Iron Chef, Vitaly Paley, has opened another restaurant – this one for the hip, hungry masses. And it's right downtown at 410 SW Broadway.
Want a frothy egg cream (with booze) or grape crush with pisco? How about fresh falafel on yummy frybread? Spicy vermicelli noodle salad, a pickle plate homemade Pop Tarts, or seriously, Reuben croissants? Or course, my first choice would be The Stan:
Smoked Chille Chile and cheddar cheese hot dog, grilled onions, PPD pickle relish and sauerkraut on Michelle’s hot dog bun. Whatever your choice, it's AMAZING, fast, fresh diner food with a twist by Portland's finest chef. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, you will love them all!
I've decided that my next new client is going to be treated to lunch here with me!! It's the perfect way to end a long afternoon of finding your new house in Portland.

ABOUT PORTLAND PENNY DINER
In 1845 Frances Pettygrove and Asa Lovejoy determined the city of Portland's name with the flip of a coin. And we like to think that after the toss they walked into their favorite diner, or as they called them in that time "lunch wagons," for a celebratory bite to eat. The Portland Penny Diner embraces that spirit, brings people in from the rain and artfully combines the culinary traditions of Northwest immigrants and natives.
