Seattle, WA 98103
Seattle Weekly's Description
Israeli chef George Rached (who is not the famed pro wrestler, but really does call himself "Gorgeous George") spends his days and nights in the kitchen of his Mediterranean shoebox-sized Gorgeous George's, grilling up Greenwood some peppery lamb shawarma and pureeing hummus into the texture of thick custard. What he comes up with is the best hummus you'll find anywhere in the city, but this doesn't leave him too fatigued to occasionally serenade one of his regulars or walk the dining room to check in on his many guests. Dinner is priced upscale, but worth it, and there are some deals at lunch.
Tips from foursquare
Lamb Ribs. Don't miss the lamb ribs.
Owner/chef comes out to talk to you at your table. Excellent Mediterranean food.
Found Spring Lamb Ribs as Yum Yum. Try it and dish on it at http://dishonit.com
Best gyro plate ever. Best baklava too.
Delicious and fabulous service. Big portions. Go for grandma's chicken (Friday-Saturday)! Chef George will have a smile on your face in no time.
