A favorite place of my boyfriend’s, close to his work is Georgio’s Country Grill on 9th Ave at the corner of 53rd Street. We stopped in for a late lunch on a Saturday and were welcomed by a very friendly host (Georgio maybe?) who found the 5 of us a table (we were dining with couple friends and their Grandma). Originally, I was drawn to the blackberry sangria they advertised out front so Mike, Grandma and I all split a pitcher. It was good but a little weak (on both alcohol and flavor) but the fruit in it was good.
The couple both ordered tuna melts (one on bread and one on English Muffins):
Grandma got the grilled cheese which made me instantly wonder if I should have ordered that:
Mike got Sonia’s wrap… but I forgot to take a picture of the inside. Menu lists it as: tender marinated chicken strips smothered in sauteed fresh mushrooms, onions and jalapeno peppers, topped with monterey jack cheese, wrapped in a soft flour tortilla. I obviously couldn’t eat it due to the peppers… but all I remember from his plate is the fries. WOW were they good! INSANELY good.
I went with the late brunch option of Eggs Benedict with lox. It was a good decision. The poached eggs were cooked perfectly… running but without being too raw. The lox were flavorful and delicious and the English Muffin wasn’t too tough to cut through. The sweet potato fries were also quite good.
I can’t speak for anyone else’s food, but what I tried was certainly above average. I’d go back just for the fries.
