Endlessly recommended as the place to come for traditional Georgian food and hospitality, Imereti can be a challenge to locate. Discreet, to put it mildly, the signage is at about knee level and the entrance down some steps below. Inside, the slightly overly bright dining room is dotted with quaint pictures of Georgian scenes and dolls in national costume and the like – faintly kitsch,rnsure, but taken together, pleasingly nostalgic. Food is excellent, though the menu somewhat impenetrable to the uninitiated. But don’t worry the staff speak some English and will be happy to help. We recommend khinkhali – large spiced ravioli – and chashushuli – a heavily spiced meat stew. The atmosphere is jolly and convivial, with families and groups of friends sharingrnjugs of very moreish cha-cha (Georgian grappa) with diners at their own – and other – tables.
