There's a long tradition of people naming things after themselves, like Trump with his properties, or George Foreman with his sons, until he ran out of sons, and had to make like, 100 million grills. For food from another guy who's also all about that name, hit the new George's.
After two raucous years of success with George's In The Grove, George-Eric Farge is opening another resto, and calling it...George's...'cept this one's on Sunset, plates French cuisine alongside global faves, and's housed in a bigger spot with an eclectic pub vibe thanks to brick walls, chalkboard menus, a bunch of stone Buddha statues, and a neon sign stating "if you don't bring your lady to George's someone else will" -- leaving you to pray they just don't mean his apartment. Small and medium eats start with apps like spicy tuna tartar with cucumber and north African harissa chili paste, while mid-size plates feature funky pizzas like duck confit with aged Gruyere or black truffle with Fontina, plus burgers like one with an 8oz Angus patty, organic heirloom tomatoes, Vermont Cheddar, and Boston lettuce, dubbed the Yankee, which considers that lettuce an absolute Green Monster. Bigger plates mean steak frites comprised of a 12oz ribeye & truffle fries, a three-hour lamb shank with white beans and pesto, grilled bronzino w/ basil & lemon vinaigrette, and luxe pastas like house-made pappardella with lobster, pesto, vodka & creme fraiche, and a morel 'shroom risotto with truffle oil & shaved foie gras, because bird liver with a five o'clock shadow is just fowl.
As for the imbibing portion of the affair, there's a full liquor bar also stocked with beers like Stella, Chimay, and Yuengling, plus wines by the glass such as Chardonnay Ferrari Cavano from Sonoma and Beaujolais Villages from Georges -- also what Foreman started naming his kids once 100 million punches started catching up with him.
