Hg2 : The Hedonist

Chez Georges

This dinky little restaurant serves dinky little plates of pleasure from an improbably small kitchen. The chef is Georges himself (and he’s no giant), who produces surprisingly high-end Franco-Belgian fare from this homely wee spot. The compactness of the dining room means conversations tend to be a little hushed, which adds to the museum-like atmosphere of quiet reverence. This is enhanced by the frilly decor – white linen table cloths; intricately folded napkins; large, gilded frames to mirrors, and an ornate, flowery colour scheme to the walls. It feels a little like sitting in a mock-up of a period house from the 20s or 30s, and Georges refusal to yield to faddishness is to be admired. As is his strong belief in cream and butter, creating a richness of flavours that is typically French. An old-school restaurant dedicated to old-school pleasures.
