This is a little hidden gem of a restaurant. Seats few people at a time but attention to detail from the chef himself coming to the table to customize your meal and please your individual taste buds.

We just did carry out since we found it last minute and saw the strong reservation recommendation. Food was great. The Asian BBQ was delicious. We also got the tacos, and they were great too. For those who have kids, nothing was too spicey, though there was some orange sauce/salsa in a separate container that was fire for those that like to heat it up. The owner was very inviting abd warm. (Offered to bring our carry out bag to the car). Will definitely visit when in town again. Place was very small, but cute inside.

A true hole in the wall, about 18 seats. We were seated at our reservation time and the menu is personally explained by the chef/owner. There were no recognizable dishes, the only drinks were water and bottled soda. The people were pleasant and it was not expensive. I will not go back, but my adult children like it.

We were in Traverse City for a few appointments and needed some lunch. Searched Yelp from the car and found Georgina's just a few blocks from where we were located. Perfect, let's give it a try. What a find! The place is small, staff & patrons were friendly and the chef came out to explain our options. Portions were fresh, ample and quickly served. I would suggest a simple explanation below each item listed on the menu, investing in an ice machine and better exhaust for the kitchen area. We will definitely make a return visit.

Amazing food, outstanding chef. Take it for what it is though, I saw lots of snobbery in other guests. Once a restaurant is rated #1 in a place like foodie Traverse City, expectations go through the roof. This is a small start up in a building with no air conditioning, no ice machine, and cramped quarters...but along with that is a chef and staff with crazy passion for what they are doing and the talent to back it up. Trust the chef, taste his sauces, and let him guide you to the right dish. You will NOT be disappointed.
