Giorg Ristaurant - Thunder Bay

Many people recommended that we try Giorg Ristorante, so we finally made it there for dinner. The location is a little hidden: the restaurant says 114 Syndicate Ave. N, but the GPS kept getting confused around Miles St. and Syndicate North. It also doesn't help that Giorg's is completely overshadowed by the new Thunder Bay Consolidated Courthouse (we couldn't see past the construction). 

Luckily for us, the restaurant was running a 4 course meal promotion for $39 per person

Caesar Salad
Giorg Caesar Insalata
Some people believe that the original Caesar salad was made with anchovies, so I was excited to try this version at Giorg's with anchovies. I liked the slightly tangy and salty dressing on the salad.

Fettucine alla Giorg
Fettuccine alla Giorg
It was a bowl of fettuccine, leek, chicken, pancetta, green onions all swimming in a rich cream sauce. It was really nice and quite filling all by itself with all the chicken and the heavy sauce.

Pollo Limone
The fish was rather delicate and nicely flavoured with a pesto sauce on top. There were also garlic mash potatoes and medley of vegetables with grilled zucchini, mushroom and carrots. The vegetable medley was really good.

Pollo Limone
Lemon chicken was also the special of the day and the waiter described the chicken so well that I knew I wanted the chicken which was marinated in lemon and lime juices. It had a great acidic lemon flavour and  was tender and tasty. It also came with the garlic mash and vegetables.

"Infamous" Giorg Nutball
It was a scoop of vanilla ice cream crusted in crushed walnuts and drizzled with caramel and chocolate sauce. All served in a nice martini glass. What a great way to end off the meal. 

Overall: Service was amazing; our waiter was very knowledgeable and his descriptions of the food made my mouth water. The food was fantastic and everything was quite reasonably priced despite the place being more fine dining.
