La Jolla Mainstay George's At The Cove Unveils Facelift After 9 Month Renovation

August 9, 2016

If you've been on Prospect Street in La Jolla this year, you've certainly noticed the ongoing construction, specifically that taking place at 1250 Prospect, where George's at the Cove's building has been undergoing a major facelift. After nine long months behind the scaffolding, the work is finally complete. The green and red awnings are gone, making way for a modern facade with new George's at the Cove signage welcoming guests back to one of The Jewel's most popular dining destinations.

"What a difference!" said Executive Chef and Partner Trey Foshee. "The architect, Mark Steele did a fantastic job. He removed many of the old Spanish-style arches, opening up the building and giving it a real southern California feel. Clean, modern lines and materials make it one of the nicest buildings on the street. All three of our levels are now easier to see from the street and new handicap lifts have made ADA access closer and easier. We now have a building where what you see on the outside lives up to what you see on the inside."

Stop by the reinvigorated George's and try out the new summer menu at California Modern, with dishes like Snapper Crudo with radish, cucumber, charred jalapeño and summer melons, and Vegetable Lasagna with Chino Farms squash and corn, baked ricotta and mushroom bolognese.
