The food presentation at The Painted Lady is a medley of modern sophistication and whimsical artistry. Case in point: the slow roasted King Salmon. The salmon rests on a bed of wild mushroom and cream sauce; a sliver of crisp prosciutto is angled on top of the salmon like a fin; and the salmon is encircled by white wine foam to resemble the sea. Or, take the Dungeness crab. It’s paired with caviar and crème fraiche, and circled by bright dollops of carrot “caviar” for color and play. Overall, presentation is delightfully innovative and often thought provoking at this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant. Most courses are served on elegant white plates in symmetrical, fluid shapes, showcasing the food, and in some instances almost creating a sense of movement.
