Homemade Food Review: The Georgian

Hello Fellow Foodies!

Have I got a treat for you!  Last year, around this time, you got a review about the Herbfarm.  This year, you get a review about The Georgian!  Two amazing dining establishments in the Greater Seattle Metro Area.  Now you all know what this time of the year is right?  Yes, it is the start of the holiday season but there is another special event that happens that seems to require me to eat at the most amazing restaurants.  No, it is not because it is Dine Around Seattle, which is happening THIS MONTH! (3 courses for $30!!!)  It just so happens to be Trevor’s Birthday! Continue reading

Homemade Food Review: The Herbfarm
