The Painted Lady Restaurant Restaurant Review: “Painted Lady” is a reference to lavishly painted Victorian homes, the numerous colors highlighting the era's architectural embellishments. This lady resides on a quiet lane just off Newberg's main street; it’s most definitely a special occasion restaurant, perfect for a romantic wine country weekend. In the dining room, chef Allen Routt offers a multi-course tasting menu that highlights the Willamette Valley's natural bounty. Selections may include a fizzy Concord grape soup; miso custard with Dungeness crab; potato-wrapped prawns; gnocchi with veal sweetbreads in a shiitake velouté sauce; salmon in a duxelle crust; and short ribs. Those with smaller appetites may select the chef's trio tasting menu. For dessert, we suggest the red velvet donut with cream cheese ice cream. Wine pairings highlighting local producers are optional. On warm summer days, outside seating is an extra treat.
