Fourth-generation chef and restaurateur Christopher Czarnecki and his wife Mary will double their culinary investment in Dayton, Oregon by opening The Barlow Room Restaurant and Bar.

The Barlow Room is a perfect complement to what we currently offer at the Joel Palmer House and gives us the opportunity to cook what we love, even when it's not at the fine dining level...

The Czarnecki Family has announced the upcoming launch of The Barlow Room Restaurant and Bar, slated for early June, just three blocks away from their world-renowned, fine dining restaurant, the Joel Palmer House.

"The Barlow Room is a perfect complement to what we currently offer at the Joel Palmer House and gives us the opportunity to cook what we love, even when it's not at the fine dining level," says Chef Czarnecki. "The Barlow Room will still deliver on our high quality standards, but at a more modest price point."

The Barlow Room, located on a historic block across the street from Dayton's Courthouse Square Park, will feature exposed brick walls, historic photos, and picture-window views of the downtown park.

The menu is still being finalized, but the Czarnecki Family remains committed to sourcing meat and produce from the surrounding Yamhill Valley and are excited to offer creative dishes focused on local flavors. Definite contenders for menu placement include mouthwatering steak bites with house-made steak sauce and fried onions, a tasty House Reuben crafted with made-from-scratch corned beef, and a Grilled Veggie Sandwich with fresh-from-the-farm produce, toasted to perfection.

What's the inspiration for the name? The answer is rooted in Oregon's rich history and the legacy of pioneer, Sam Barlow. Barlow and fellow pioneer, Joel Palmer, joined the westward migration to Oregon and together blazed a new trail over the Cascade Range that became known as the Barlow Road. Although Barlow continued on to Oregon City, Palmer subsequently founded the city of Dayton, Oregon and build the house that is now the home of the Joel Palmer House restaurant.
