The original menu blended elements of Caribbean, Latin and classic European cuisines with traditional Southern fare with dishes like “The George” Smokehouse Platter with country ham and pimento cheese or “Rum Drunk Duck” over mashed sweet potatoes, with collards and coconut milk stewed tomatoes.
Throughout the years, The George found its niche in the style of “Southern Coastal Cuisine” and created the dishes we now know and love, like “George’s” Shrimp and Grits, Bacon Encrusted Scallops and Bangkok Tuna.
Décor changed significantly as well, evolving from bright pastels of coral and sea-foam green to sleeker shades of black, gray and silver.
Although not the typical bar scene, The George features an impressive selection of North Carolina craft beers and extensive wine and martini lists that have changed with the times as well.
After all, George, himself, loves a good martini!
