Loved this crazy little ethnic restaurant. I had delish fish tacos served with black beans (In a mole sauce?) and rice. The hubster enjoyed his pork lechon de something something and we left feeling happy .... like stuffed pigs. We enjoyed this restaurant when it was the Cooks House prior to Georgina's. There is clearly good restaurant karma in this spot.

Small and intimate dining room, about 10 tables next to the kitchen. Excellent waitstaff. The chef who will prepare your meal will visit you before ordering to explain the choices. The menu offers Asian or Latin American flavors. During summer and fall the vegetables are fresh from local growers. Each meal is individually prepared using fresh ingredients and can be adjusted to your liking. Creativity in the kitchen is another reason to visit here and return. No wine or cocktails, but you have a choice of bottled soft drinks, fruit juice or tea. Attention is on the food. Reservations recommended.

Georginas came recomended by TA and our B&B host, and we were lucky enough to get a table last minute on a Friday night. The food coming out of the kitchen is fantastic, with excellent Asian and Latin choices. No bad choices here...most of the menu is $13 or less..just get there for sure!

It's small, so small. But it's neatly kept, and it's on a pretty street, complete with a small river right behind it. You can't get in without reservations, that's how small they are. The menu is smart, stylish, unfussy. They clearly know what they do best, and if some of the dishes are unfamiliar to you, and most might well be, given that its Cuban on one side, I found it lovely that the chef actually comes by and talks to you about them, helps you choose, then makes it for you in a few minutes. They can adjust some elements to your preference, I guess, though we didn't ask for any changes.

The dessert, they have all of two options, we tried the flan, is a small portion but it is very good. Don't miss Georginas if you're in TC. It's worth every penny.

If you are in Traverse City, this is a restaurant that you do NOT want to miss. It's a hole in the wall, but the menu and the ingredients are to die for. The chef comes out to help you with your selections and answer any questions. One side of the menu is your Asian inspired side and the other side is a Cuban/Nicarguan inspired dishes. Prices are good, plentiful servings, wonderful ingredients and flavourful food. There is no alchol served here and that's ok with me since I drink enough beer and wine, but maybe a craft beer would be a nice touch to this wonderful little restaurant. Home made cooking at it's best here
