I was recently (two weeks ago) on a roadtrip from the midwest to Seattle traveling I90. Before leaving fly over country I had been following the Pac NW Board anticipating my arrival in Seattle. There was a brief discussion in mid October about Tendrils at Cave B Inn near George on the Gorge. As it was a convenient stop on our way to the city we stopped for a Sunday night by the gorge. Not food related, but the Inn, open less than a year, is one of the most romantic and scenic places we have stayed. We enjoyed a night overlooking the gorge in our "Cliff House," in the middle of Cave B winery and vinyard.
Now to the food. With the chef we had anticipated a grains bent to the food. With a couple of exceptions the menu was not in that vein. The room is small and the view is SPECTACULOR looking west over the gorge. My good half ordered roast chicken and vegetables. Nice but nothing to drive 1500 miles from the Midwest. I ordered the pork. Pork is king where we live, but I have to say it was one of the best chops I have ever tasted in a restaurant. Served with grilled apple, beet and sweet potato with a glaze. Perfectly grilled and could almost cut with a fork.
On the way out after breakfast (very nice and included in the room) the following morning got a look at the Thanksgiving menu which looked inviting at $35 per person. Must say that it would be great to spend a couple of nights at the Inn feasting on TDay dinner. Not sure I could rate the chow on one visit, but the whole experience is top rate. Hope we don't have to take the I90 drive again but, if we do, hello Columbia gorge!
