Wine Country Report: Painted Lady

Food writer in pdx | Apr 23, 2006 07:27 PM

Six of us went wine tasting Saturday and then visited the packed and popular new Painted Lady Restaurant in Newberg on Saturday night. I'm, in general, a reasonably tough critic; this was a very good meal with absolutely impeccable service.

Among the highlights were a chicken breast wrapped in prosciutto (extremely moist) over a very slightly, and perfectly, flavored blue cheese polenta; pork tenderloin in pomegrante glaze (wonderful flavor, nut encrusted); arugula salad (I felt it was slightly overdressed, others did not); asparagus salad (perfection indeed); a chevre cheesecake that was wonderful. $39 three courses; we could hardly walk out we were so full. Wine list a bit overpriced, $15 corkage so bring your own (we did, but our temperanillo was on their list so we didn't ask it be opened). Unobtrusive yet truly remarkable service kept everything humming. Recommended.
