Eat for I-5

The Georgian offers a prix-fixe for the fixing


I’m weary of special menus. Sure, celebrating Julia Child is a great excuse for a special dinner, but when places start gussying up for events they just shouldn’t celebrate -  Cinco de Mayo at an Irish bar, for example – I get downright annoyed. I can be cranky that way.

When I heard about The Georgian’s new I-5 menu, I was just confused: Dinner at The Fairmont? Celebrating road construction at a restaurant known for dishes like tomato consommé and fois gras?

But yes, friends, it exists. The Georgian is offering a $45 three-course traffic-themed dinner menu until August 29th, when the construction on I-5 is scheduled to end.

Behold:

I5 Menu


Spokane Street Caesar
Romaine Bumper-to-Bumper with Lobster Caesar Dressing
~
Horn Honking Smoked Salmon with Pothole Smashed Potatoes
or
1-90 Farms "Free Range" Chicken
Honking Honey Corn Cake, Jammed-Up Beans
~
Tail Light Delight
Black and White Soufflé

Call me a gastrointestinal wuss, but I’m not sure I’d risk trying the Jammed-Up Beans, regardless of how appropriately they may be named.

The menu (along with a $12 "I-5’er Martini") will be available through the 29th, even if construction is completed 5 days ahead of schedule, as currently estimated (which means, of course, that you should wait until the construction is over to go). Complimentary valet parking included.
