A wonderful Middle Eastern restaurant in downtown Northville. The food was great & a beautiful pretention. I had the artichoke puff, it was wonderful! Definitely will be back.
Le George in Northville successfully mixes French touches with Lebanese cuisine…Beirut, after all, was known as the Paris of the Mideast. So it’s not too much of an affectation that soup is listed as le potage, seafood dishes are called fruits de mer, and tournedos and steak au poivre are among the shishes and shawarmas on the menu.” read more…
We sat outside on a beautiful day. It’s a great setting in an adorable town. We both had the Chicken Schwarma, which was outstanding! Service was great, and everyone gets greeted by the owner.
This place is the definition of a restaurant that gets better with age. A feeling of personalized hospitality wafts through upon any visit here and the food has steadily improved. This should now be considered one of the 3-4 best Middle Eastern restaurants in an area inundated by them. I seemingly judge most restaurants in the category by their fatoosh and this is the best I’ve had. Radishes and prolific use of parsley is a must, as is that intensely citrusy and sumac infused dressing. Their version with the added feta and garlic roasted chicken is a dish I could eat 3 times a week. Falafel is also one of the 2 or 3 best iterations I’ve ever had. The Beirut Nights dessert brings the rosewater to the forefront and is a great way to end the meal. Good wine list, wonderful atmosphere and confident service.
We went into this restaurant not knowing what it was. We were looking at a house in the area and this place looked inviting. We went in and noticed it is middle eastern food, Lebanese. I am middle eastern and have eaten at almost every middle eastern restaurant in southeast michigan. Those do not compare to Le George. In fact, the authenticity of the cooking only compares to my Grandma’s cooking. I had the veggie grape leaf appetizer. I asked for them cold and with a lemon. I recommend you request them this way. They were excellent. The owner came over and when I asked him more about a Lebanese gazpacho on the menu. He insisted on providing me with a sample. It was excellent. He asked if my son eats hummus and brought some over for him, which my one year old loved. I also ordered the Lentil soup, excellent. Salads, excellent. My wife had the m’jadra(sp), excellent. But the best thing was the rice pudding- served cold, with cinnamon- excellent. Atmosphere was excellent. Waitress was great, owner was great. Enough said – go there!
Amazing food – fresh, unique and not overdone. The owner, George, is always there and always comes by to see how the food is and chat about things. He is a delight.
