Menu and Prices:
The Fare: The cuisine is classic French and fusion, with heavy Asian accents. Many of the dishes are reminiscent of Californian cuisine. There are plenty of options for vegetarians or otherwise-health-conscious eaters. Some typical menu items may include:
- Sole Meunière
- Duck with Caramel and Coconut
- Vegetarian Spring Rolls
- Tuna with Coriander
Prices: Expect to pay around 35-70 Euros per person (excluding wine).
Designed by Dominique Jacob and Brendan McFarlane, Georges is sprawling and minimalist, yet the design manages to come off as a tad whimsical. There are the stark white tables and chairs and single long-stem roses in vases on each table. The use of aluminum sheeting resembling the valves of a heart makes the space degrees intimate and warmer, despite the heavy use of metal and glass. The effect is slightly pretentious, but eye-catching.
Outside, a large terrace makes a summer mojito or caipirinha a must (bug-eyed designer sunglasses not required).
One last word of advice: the views are superior at night.
