It's not just the cuisine that's out of this world, Stonehedge is of another time and place, surrounded by 7 acres of lush English-style gardens that gracefully frame its multitude of stone terraces and trickling fountains. There's a petanque (lawn bowling) court for quick predinner activity, and music on Wednesday nights in summer draws a full house. Each of the four dining rooms in the restored 1898 home has a distinct personality, from cozy to verdant to elegant,
but the tiered patio is where summer diners gather. Classics like steak Diane and filet mignon appeal to more traditional diners, while buffalo-style prawns and curry shiitake mushroom soup show off the kitchen's creative side. Just when you think your meal is complete, along comes the Flaming Bread Pudding. This restaurant is a Columbia Gorge institution.
