Restaurant News and Reviews from Salem, Oregon

Quick, early report on a new place in town. Demurely called The Kitchen, it's on Court Street where Casey's used to be. But you wouldn't know it. Walking in, there's a fresh, clean, comfy-homey-modern feel. The narrow, long space is well used with a line of tables along the left, with a large booths that jut into the fron

If you live in Salem, chances are you have a favorite sit down coffee joint as well as a fave drive-up. Coffee is ubiquitous in our town and we love it. Each place has its own personality, coffee roast, and a way they support the community. Whenever the subject of coffee comes up in conversation,  I share my favorite pl

I even created a logo/badge/whatchamacallit. The project faded after a half dozen reports in 2009, but I am here to resurrect it and bre

By CONNOR MITCHELL From the appetizer to the dessert, no one does a wine dinner like chef Michael Sullivan at Papa Di Vino’s Wine Bar and Shop. And while the $80 tab seemed a hefty price to pay, shortly into the experience, I realized it was well worth it. The evening started with a social hour that included a Rose that

Wednesday morning I heard the sad news that Salem lost an icon--Chuck Bradley. He was a long time realtor, but what many remember him for was his penchant for dining out. Chuck didn't care if it was a hole in the wall, a local favorite or a chain. If it was new or interesting, he was there. There were several times when I
