Drink (and Eat) Like You’re Family

At Dossier, Chef Vitaly Paley, the James Beard Award-winning chef of Paley’s Place, Imperial and Headwaters, and his partner and wife Kimberly Paley have created Portland’s most inviting new destination for great food and good times: Rosa Rosa. And, don’t miss the Back Room.

Drink, Eat and Explore

Inspired by Chef Vitaly Paley and Kimberly Paley’s tours through Europe, Rosa Rosa is named for the chef’s Ukrainian grandmother. Here, you’ll find the flavors of cuisines born in the lands of the Ottoman and Roman Empires reinterpreted in a uniquely Portland way.

Start your day with a smoked salmon Benedict, brioche French toast or eggs baked in a spicy tomato sauce. Indulge in pastries like ricotta doughnut holes with cinnamon sugar and boyo, a Turkish spinach-and-feta-filled bread. The mezze platter is made to share and so is the crispy fried ricotta with salsa verde. Salads star local produce. So do pastas and pressed sandwiches. Brunch is served daily. But, life is short. Don’t wait for the weekend to order up morning cocktails and bubbly.

Starting at 11 a.m. on weekdays, Rosa Rosa’s all-day menu features pastas, shareable plates, and entrees. Pomodoro, puttanesca and carbonara. Bruschetta, hummus, and caprese salad. Roasted squash with feta, honey, harissa and sumac. Lamb meatballs stewed in sour cherries, sumac, and shallots. Chicken paired with blue fenugreek, butter, sour cream, and cloves. Happy hour is served daily with specials on sharable plates and snacks.

Come for lunch. Meet for happy hour. Settle in for the evening.

Bring your friends. Make new ones. Drink like you’re family.
