Filet de Canette a L’orange, embeurree de celeri rave (25€) – Fillet of duckling in orange sauce with cauliflower. A huge piece of duck breast cooked to a perfect medium rare accented by a slightly orangy sauce.
Poulet fermier roti – Plat Du Jour (19) Today’s special was a perfectly done Roast Chicken. An excellent price for a very big quarter of a chicken in a wine flavored brown sauce. It included a large portion of finely purreed mashed potatoes with lots of butter. A couple next to us ordered 2 of these. Cheap and wonderful.
Turbotin Poele Meunier puree de pommes de terre rattes au beurre demi-sel (34) Turbot with puree of fingerling potatoes in salted butter. Our most expensive dish and it was fantastic. Lots of texture but not as much as monkfish. Cooked perfectly with a minimal amount of a light sauce.
Entrecote de Bouef d’Argentine poelee “Pampa Verde” (28) We had to try steak frites in Paris… Pan fried Sirloin Steak from Argentina was cooked to a nice medium rare. It was of good size, but the meat quality was average. Beef in the US is superior! Tons of super crispy fries.
Salade Frisee a la catalane (13) was a pretty standard but huge salad. Fresh greens, light vinagrette dressing. It came with toast with foie gras spread.
Chez Georges had decent service with a professional waiter who was standoffish and spoke a little English. There is no English menu here. Prices are typical for a bistro of this level making this not a difficult recommendation for those in the area. Half a bottle of excellent rose costs a reasonable 16€. Many restaurants in France are closed on Sunday, Chez Georges is open.
Keep in mind there are other restaurants with the same name located on 1 rue du Mail (2nd Arrondissement) and 11, Rue des Canettes (6th Arrondissement). Metro station: Porte Maillot
