On a recent Saturday night, Kirsten and I racked our brains on where to go for date night. She suggested Georgio’s, and lured by thoughts of a well cooked steak, we made the short drive from the Farm to Tallahassee.
Upon arrival, we were seated at a cozy booth and our waiter appeared with two menus. The restaurant was dimly lit, in classic steakhouse style, and the booth provided a nice amount of privacy for our date night. Cocktails were ordered as we surveyed our dinner options. Various appetizers were available ranging from calamari, to spicy shrimp, to several Greek specialties including mezedakia (beef tips) and spanakopita. The list of entrees was even longer. Hand cut steaks, seafood, fresh lamb, and pasta dishes were all available. While trying to choose our food, we snacked on a basket of warm bread with butter.
Our patient waiter returned on two occasions, as we agonized over our decisions. Eventually selections were made, with Kirsten ordering the roasted garlic stuffed filet mignon, while I requested the NY Strip. The meals came with either a soup or salad, selection of potato and a vegetable. Suffering from a recent vegetable intake shortage we decided to pay a small up charge to try Georgio’s roasted pecan and feta dinner salad. We also asked for Georgio’s legendary potato pie, but were informed a large party had consumed all available portions of this side. In their place, twice baked potatoes were paired with the steaks.
