The philosophy of Larks (short for meadowlark, Oregon's state bird) created by owners Doug and Becky Neuman is best described as “farm to table” – pairing the freshest foods from local farms with great Oregon wines, artisan chocolate desserts and drinks in a relaxing and soothing atmosphere. Comfort food is Larks’ specialty. Dishes like homemade meatloaf and Anniebelle’s fried chicken are most popular. And there are creative twists on old favorites like local vegetable Shepherd’s Pie with mashed celery root. Other specialties include Anderson Ranch Osso Bucco and maple-glazed pork chops with apple compote made from the organic apples at the Neuman’s Farm. Ingredients like truffle oil, wild mushrooms, hazelnut, pear and marionberry layer in the Oregon flavor. And for dessert it’s Dagoba chocolate sundaes, Endangered Species truffles and butterscotch cookies inspired by Aunt Ella’s 1932 recipe served with pudding just to name a few.
Furnishings including two- and three-person settees layered with cushions and pillows create comfortable seating arrangements at the tables while loom chairs painted in sage, olive and mustard colors are mixed about to give a casual, eclectic feel.
The artwork, lamps and even the waiters’ ties have been specially collected by Becky Neuman, also the designer, to reflect a 1940s nostalgia, which compliments the charm and casual elegance of the landmark Ashland Springs Hotel.
