JORY, is the 100-seat signature restaurant led by Executive Chef Sunny Jin. Jin began his career at the famed French Laundry where he worked under Thomas Keller, then spent a season at El Bulli, the world’s top rated restaurant, located in Catalonia, Spain.
The décor in shades of burgundy and gold and highlighted by natural Oregon woods, is elegant yet casual. Guests can dine in the restaurant, at the Chef’s table, at the kitchen counter or outside on the terrace.
The menu makes great use of Oregon’s locally produced products. A celeriac soup with smoked ham, guanciale croquette and watercress oil was wonderful and a tasting of Pacific oysters with an apple mignonette was a great twist on a standard dish. A trio of rabbit, leg, loin and confit, was expertly prepared, juicy and tender. A corn polenta was the perfect accompaniment.
Tom Bean has assembled a wonderful wine list, heavy on Oregon Pinots as you might expect, but also with excellent choices from around the world, including some hard-to-get cult wines.
