Known for it’s spectacular view of La Jolla Cove, George’s at the Cove is the perfect spot to enjoy a cocktail or savor a little something from celebrity chef Trey Foshee. The food is a blend of healthy and traditional or California Modern. For starters try the George’s Famous soup a mix of smoked chicken, broccoli and black beans or the yummy creamy buratta with pea pesto, slow roasted tomatoes, basil, balsamic and grilled sourdough. Other starters include: hummus, grilled octopus, fish ceviche, mussels, and baby kale topped with strawberries, ricotta, fennel, almonds, quinoa and tangerine vinaigrette.
For dinner, my friend Cindy & I shared the Red Wine Braised Short Ribs served with carrot puree, asparagus, swiss chard, tomato marmalade and crispy leeks. Enough to share. Other entrees of note are Northern Halibut, Filet Mignon, Duck Confit, Faroe Island Salmon, Spaghetti and Clams, Grass-Fed or Plant-Based Burgers. Prices range from $23 – $41.
We enjoyed a relaxed dinner on Level 2 complete with a view and sunset. Reservations are highly suggested. Happy Hour is available Monday through Friday from 3:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. and features $10 speciality cocktails, $5 beers and $7 wines by the glass. Reverse Happy Hour is from 9 p.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday.
George’s also showcases a six course chef’s tasting menu with beverage pairings upon request for $170, without wine pairing is $110.
After dinner, guests may enjoy toasted ice cream, sorbet, warm chocolate tart or doughnuts and dips. On a cool night you might enjoy a Chartreuse Hot Chocolate with Green Chartreuse, white creme de cocoa, malted chocolate steamed milk and salted whipped cream.
This venue has three floors: Ocean Terrace, Level 2 and California Modern. Group events are welcome.
