Find French cuisine at Georges Brasserie in South Park

Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of interviewing Azam Mehdi, partner of Georges Brasserie. He and George Bakatsias have impressed guests with fine French dining in the heart of South Park for over six years.

If you think this establishment is too fancy for ya, think again. While they do serve several dishes that I cannot pronounce, I can assure you they have something that will suit you. Think mussels bathed in white wine… crab cakes… charcuterie boards… and some of the best frites (yes, French fries) you can find in CLT.

Take a look at some of their new fall menu items and some old favorites.
