The Agenda team loves it when we get to dress up and feel fancy in dining establishments and Georges Brasserie was no exception. We sampled items from the Happy Hour and dinner menus and left feeling both satisfied and wanting more.

Cocktails ($12)

From left to right: the De Gaulles Masterpiece (St. Germain, basil, citrus and champagne), C&G Collins (Hendrick’s Gin, cucumber, cracked pepper, house sour and Ginger Ale) and One Rosemary and Fig (Ketel One Oranje, fresh fig, rosemary, lemon, bitters and club soda). Verdicts: hit, hit for everyone except myself, hit.

Crispy Brussels Leaves ($5)

Brussels Sprouts leaves soaked in a balsamic glaze. Available at dinner as well. The verdict: hit.


georges brussels

Safrron Risotto ($19)

Katie was mostly surprised that they had anything vegan at all, and this risotto made with mascarpone, peas, cauliflower, cherry tomatoes and mushroom hit the mark. Available at dinner. Verdict: Hit.

The oysters normally come in a Plateau. The closest to this would be the Petit Plateau (3 oysters, 3 shrimp, 3 clams, 3 mussels for $19) that you can order off of either menu. Verdict: we slurped them down. Hit.

Pommes Frites ($3)

Crispy, shoestring and perfect. Available on their own at Happy Hour and as a side at dinner. The verdict: hit.

georges fries

Petite Beef Wellington ($7)

The beef is tender and will fall apart in your mouth. Available at Happy Hour. Verdict: hit.

Fiery Mussels ($7)

Mussels in a pepper, onion and chorizo sauce. Available at Happy Hour and Dinner. The verdict: hit. Out of the park. Star of the show. Ted Williams mopped up his sauce with his leftover bread.

Charcuterie (3 for $12, 5 for $18)

Country pate, torchon de foie gras and duck liver and truffle mousse. Maybe our palates just aren’t developed enough for this type of food yet, but it didn’t sit well with us. Available at dinner. Verdict: miss.

Scallop Crudo ($9)

The scallops come with pickled root vegetables, blood orange, jalapeños and champagne vinaigrette. Well done, Georges. Well done. Available at Happy Hour. Verdict: Hit.
