The Historic Joel Palmer House Restaurant Announces Outdoor Dining Area Expansion

Share Article

Chef and Owner Christopher Czarnecki announced that the carriage house building adjacent to the main Joel Palmer House restaurant will be renovated to create an expanded, covered, outdoor dining area.

The outdoor dining area at the Joel Palmer House in Dayton, Oregon has for years been the best spot of the Willamette Valley for diners to enjoy a mushroom themed dinner with local Pinot Noir. In April 2014, renovations will begin on the carriage house to create a covered, outdoor dining area that will expand the Joel Palmer House's ability to serve their guests.

The carriage house building is adjacent to the main Joel Palmer House. Built in the 1970's, it was modeled to complement the Georgian Revival style of the historical Joel Palmer House. Since the Czarnecki Family purchased the property in 1996, the carriage house has served as a dry and cold storage area for the restaurant as well as a truffle processing facility for the production of Oregon White Truffle Oil.

Due to the often wet, but still temperate weather of Oregon spring and fall seasons, the Czarnecki Family lamented the fact that the outdoor dining area has gone unused even when there is only a slight drizzle or threat of rain. By converting half of the existing carriage house structure into an expanded covered dining area, guests of the Joel Palmer House will be able to enjoy outdoor dining in a dry, warm, comfortable environment after renovations are complete.

Plans for the renovation have been submitted and Champion Property Improvement of St. Paul Oregon will begin construction in April 2014. Later improvements to the new outdoor dining area will include additional bathrooms, an outdoor bar, a walk-in cooler, and a secondary kitchen. These improvements will further enable the Joel Palmer House serve its guests and remain a world-class destination restaurant and special event and wedding space in the heart of Oregon's wine country.
