Seattle has a real deficit of restaurants that are as posh as a scene from Sex And The City. And just like that, The George opened. If you’re looking for a new place to dress up without feeling ridiculous, add this opulent spot in the newly-renovated Fairmont Olympic Hotel to your back pocket. The menu, involving everything from seafood towers to pasta, is longer than a spoiled child’s holiday wishlist and is pretty customizable to whatever mood you’re in. A couple of Seedlip mocktails alongside fresh oysters and tart nước chấm-soaked salmon belly crudo on a first date? Possible. Buttery lamb neck agnolotti with a side of nori-infused sourdough to swipe up all of the brothy sauce? Do it. A whole roasted chicken washed down with a bottle of Willamette Valley skin contact Viognier for a group? Lovely. Martinis and fries at the bar all by yourself? Yes indeed. This is our favorite new hotel restaurant in the city.
