First Bites

Georges Kitchen and Loft: A First Bite (Photos)

Georges Kitchen and Loft is a departure into opulence for restaurateur Georges-Eric Farge.

Farge, who is known for his casual French/American Miami bistros, recently opened Georges, hiring a Michelin Star chef and gutting an old antique shop in Midtown to create his own vision of what happens when New York meets Paris meets Miami.

As he greets me with a glass of champagne, the restaurateur chats about his new, swankier venture in Midtown Miami. "At first, I didn't get this neighborhood. Then I walked around a bit. I noticed that there's an electricity in the air. People walk here. People live here. And I knew I wanted to be a part of this community and to bring good food and a place to enjoy cocktails here."
