In case you didn’t know, The Fairmont Olympic has been under a $25 million dollar restoration project since January 2020. And now all of that hard work is coming to a close with the opening of the hotel’s newest signature restaurant – The George. It’s an experience that both long-time and new Fairmont guests will enjoy.
The George will be run by newly appointed Restaurant Executive Chef Thomas Cullen. Chef Cullen will set the new restaurant apart with a brasserie-inspired menu. What’s more, it will be a showcase of the PNW’s best offering, seafood. Patrons will be able to dine on the freshest seafood straight from local waters as well as dry-aged meats sourced from farms across the PNW.
That’s not all though, you can expect to find artisan cheeses, PNW produce, sustainably foraged items, and more. Some of the signature dishes include a traditional French bouillabaisse, The George seafood tower featuring a plethora of the sea’s best offerings, and Painted Hills bone-in short rib with heirloom carrots and natural jus.
Of course, the menu will also be accompanied by an extensive bar program with hand-crafted signature cocktails created by Jesse Cyr, the hotel’s award-winning Beverage Curator. And all of this will happen in a fresh new interior by Spanish design studio Lázaro Rosa Violán (LRV). They’ve created a space that balances the hotel’s classic elements while adding modern flair.
While we know you’re probably chomping at the bit to grab a reservation, you’ll have to wait until the restaurant’s opening on April 4th. But you can plan ahead and place your reservations as early as March 7th.
