The Painted Lady Restaurant Restaurant Review: "Painted Lady" refers to a lavishly painted Victorian home, its many colors highlighting elaborate millwork trim and structural embellishments typical of 1890s construction. This lady, on a quiet lane just off Newberg's main street, showcases chef Allen Routt's expertise. His prix-fixe menus --- both a standard four-course and a 15 to 20 course "tasting" extravaganza --- highlight the Willamette Valley's agricultural bounty. Selections have included crispy Netarts oysters with a green tomato rémoulade; slow-roasted wild salmon with broccoli and quinoa risotto; veal with celery root, red wine, brioche crumbs and an herb salad; and a delicate pistachio soufflé paired with chocolate crème anglaise. Local wines and beers dominate the beverage offerings, many from small, little-known producers, so you’ll find the servers an essential resource in making a selection. The Painted Lady is a lovely find, and well worth turning into a weekend destination.
