Imagine my dismay when I heard that the open-air Ocean Terrace at George’s at the Cove, would be closed from November 26 through December 22, 2007 for major renovations.
:( Major disappointment!!! boo-hoo !
However… believe it or not….
They finished their renovations EARLY!
Luck be a lady .. (me:P)
We made reservations for lunch on the same day I was schedule to fly out of LA (midnight flight) … talk about nick of time
and this is like BEFORE you even see the menu…
I love champagne… especially served like this ! tres chic!
I had the shrimp which was grilled to perfection.. it tasted of sea-salt and all the natural smells of the ocean… every mouthful felt like a vacation on the beach… !
It tasted a little gamey for me, but I was assured that duck taste like that in the states….
so.. ok! pretty strong tasting .. but in a good way
What more can one ask for?
With that… i end my 2 week long excursion to the great US of A.
I had a phenomenal time… and I will be back, for sure… in the near future…
(although I would really like to see New York next… hmmmm… time and bank account permitting ;P)
Food : 8/10 (very very good)
Price : high end
Service : Exceptional (every single waiter could tell you what was on the menu and what it would taste like, and what cocktail goes with what… )
Ambiance : 10/10 !!!
