Bethesda’s dining scene will get a lot meatier next month with the arrival of carnivore-friendly George’s Chophouse, currently scheduled to debut Wednesday, November 1.
Restaurateur Ashish Alfred, who also runs neighboring brasserie Duck Duck Goose, plans to serve a variety of steaks, seasonal pastas, and seafood including mussels, clams, oysters, and crab claws at his latest hospitality venture (4935 Cordell Avenue).
The newly renovated space, which can fit up to 85, invites diners to settle into elegant cream banquettes with views of the open kitchen.
Other design accents include exposed brick, ornate mirrors, and modern lighting.
George’s plans to serve five different cuts of beef from a 36-ounce Tomahawk rib-eye to an 8-ounce filet (both cooked sous-vide). Appetizers include souffle doused with cheese table-side, as well as fried Maitake mushrooms served with horseradish cream sauce.
