USA Today Newspaper names town to its 10 Best Readers' Choice Travel Awards list

PMG FILE RENDERING - The newspaper's editors said the merits of three restaurants in particular factored heavily in Newberg receiving the distinction, namely the Painted Lady, Jory at the Allison Inn & Spa (pictured) and SubTerra.

According to a recent survey, Newberg has the best food of any small town in the western United States, an accolade that has local tourism folks very excited.

USA Today released its annual 10 Best Readers' Choice Travel Awards last week and chose the bucolic Yamhill County town of 23,400 as the sole west coast recipient.

"We're thrilled to see the restaurants in Newberg and the hard-working people who've run them recognized with this award," Leslie Caldwell, executive director of Taste Newberg, said in a release. "We have an incredible food destination in our small wine country town, driven by quality, creativity and locally-sourced ingredients — and we're so pleased that people are taking notice."

According to the release, USA Today's panel selected a list of the 20 notable small towns to visit for their culinary offerings around the country and polled their readers to decide on the best.

"The readers have spoken and narrowed it down to 10 winning destinations with 'big food scenes with chef-driven restaurants, local flavors and plenty of variety, especially given their small size," the release said.

The newspaper's editors said the merits of three restaurants in particular factored heavily in Newberg receiving the distinction, namely the Painted Lady, Jory at the Allison Inn & Spa and SubTerra.
