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 10 courses at dinner --- or choose à la carte from three categories. Starters include seared sea scallops with grapefruit and quinoa and duck breast with bloomed raisins and horseradish. From there, move on to beef short rib with three cheese agnolotti or Cornish hen and goat cheese mousse. Among entrée standouts are venison with potato pierogies and glacier bass with a lemony onion purée. 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.
