George Restaurant Restaurant Review: Executive chef Lorenzo Loseto creates everything in his open-concept kitchen, including all breads and pastries. Order the prix-fixe tasting menu --- three or four courses at lunch and five, seven or ten courses at dinner --- or choose à la carte from three categories. Starters include smoked duck with chestnut caponata and pork tenderloin accented by artichoke mustard and pistachios. From there, move on to black cod with sweet, earthy beets and avocado mousse, or sea scallops with cauliflower velouté and black miso. Among entrée standouts are peppercorn-crusted salmon in squash broth and bass with sesame spätzle. Vegetarian and vegan options are available, too. Finish up with a dessert or --- better yet --- a Canadian cheese plate. Abundant wine offerings span over 450 primarily limited production, local, organic and biodynamic selections, and may be enjoyed by the glass, bottle or via pairing. There’s also a tiny cocktail lounge at the entrance, perfect for after-work or pre-dinner socializing. Of note are its fresh-squeezed juices. The secluded outdoor terrace and garden in the back is one of the best in the city.
