scott dolich


Scott started cooking as a butcher in North Carolina. It wasn’t a conscious decision for him to start cooking but the process and the ingredients that surround food quickly became more important than his studies. He cashed in on his long held desire to become a doctor and began his restaurant career as a dishwasher and a ski bum in Aspen Colorado. {more}Loading

The intriguing clever New American-Pacific NW food is ably matched by engaging service.The whole package is made even more enticing with cool decor and the sidewalk seating that looks onto the bocce action.”
– Zagat: America’s Top Restaurants

Twice Nominee for Best Chef Northwest

“36 Hours In Portland – Saturday Night – 8pm Hot Reservation – subtly superb.”
– The New York Times

“The meal is amazing from beginning to end, the service is first-rate, the ambience friendly and relaxed — the perfect place to sit back and enjoy an evening.”

–  Financial Times

“With the Clash Kitchen on its stereo and its glass garage door, Park Kitchen may look like other Portland restaurants, but there’s something magical afoot.”
– The New York Times Style Magazine


new site + new chef (ethan)


As you can see, the Park Kitchen website is new and very much improved. The old website was our original one from when we opened in 2003. It has weathered it’s travels around the WorldWideWeb quite well but we decieded to redo it before it got too long in the tooth. Of course we hired our good friend Todd Skiles at Fullblast Creative to unleash his magnificent brand of dorky-ness on this site. We love it because it makes us look cool. We hope you look cool too.

The Website certainly isn’t the only thing that’s changing at PK. Those of you who follow us know that Park Kitchen is always and forever evolving. In the restaurant world, if you’re not getting better you’re getting old. My job is to make sure that we are always getting better. Usually this evolution is a slow and steady march forward that can only be perceived in retrospect after looking at old menus or talking to one of the many fantastic employees that have worked at Park Kitchen over the past 9 years.

Every now and Then we’re able to take a big and very noticeable step forward. {more}Loading

patio furniture


When Scott mentioned that we needed new patio furniture for the restaurant, I knew just the man for the job. My father, Trigger Cook, had just moved into town and needed a new project.

He accepted the job and agreed to build us ten new tables and twenty-two small benches for our outdoor patio. As a boat builder by trade, he was familiar with water’s impact on wood. {more}Loading
