The creation of former White House chef Frank Ruta, Palena showcases his own interpretation of American cuisine with an Italian- and French-influenced menu. The restaurant has a main dining room, which offers a prix fixe menu that changes daily to highlight seasonal ingredients, as well as the café, offering a la carte dining and a more relaxed atmosphere. Selections include slow cooked wild Alaskan salmon with Gaeta olives and garlic and red wine marinated lamb loin with braised kale and roasted kabocha squash.
