The Veranda at The Georgian Hotel in Santa Monica celebrates

This year marks The Georgian Hotel’s 80th anniversary on the beachfront of Santa Monica, CA. Vacationers have been drawn to this hotel for years for its glamour, grace, and speakeasy lore. The actual speakeasy is downstairs and is now used for meetings and private events. Black and white photos adorn the walls in the hotel and the interiors have been restored to their majestic heyday. It’s like you are watching a black and white movie and then the color magically appears, like The Wizard of Oz. The Veranda is the hotel’s restaurant which is situated on the actual veranda of the hotel. In celebration of their anniversary, they are running a Retro Tasting Menu serving up time-honored culinary classics and inspired libations.

Mini Monte Cristo Sandwich

Mini Monte Cristo Sandwich is a decadent stack of turkey, ham, Gruyere cheese in a battered egg bread fried to a golden brown. The crispy egg bread was not too greasy but could use a little more cheese to increase the gooey sensation. The turkey, ham, and cheese worked well together and raspberry sauce added the umami flavor. Thumbs up!

Grilled Chicken Waldorf Salad

Grilled Chicken Waldorf salad was grilled chicken breast, arugula, chopped apples, diced celery, candied walnuts, grapes, and orange infused cranberries tossed in a light apple-orange infused mayo dressing. This had a nice combination of flavors – refreshing apple, fresh green arugula, tangy cranberry. Unfortunately, the dressing was a little too light. It might work better with a balsamic vinaigrette but it won’t really fit the Waldorf theme.

Steak Diane

Steak Diane is a grilled 6 oz. “baseball” steak grilled and smothered in a creamy mushroom-madeira sauce. The steak was grilled to a perfect rare and tender as can be. The mushroom-madeira sauce was excellent and paired well with the steak and the vegetables. Thumbs up, way up!

Pork Medallions with Lemon Caper Sauce

Pork Medallions with Lemon Caper Sauce was roasted pork tenderloin sliced and drizzled with a classic lemon caper sauce, topped with lemon and thyme. The pork was cooked a little too long making it a little tough and dry. The lemon caper sauce was excellent and helped moisten up the pork and also worked great with the vegetables. Thumbs up!

Veggie Meatloaf

Veggie Meatloaf is fire roasted tomatoes, toasted walnuts, diced celery, yellow onion, fresh garlic, parsley and green bell pepper and topped with fire roasted “Ketchup” and served with green beans in a hazelnut gremolata. The “meatloaf” had a very soft texture and was very loose for a “meatloaf”. But I really liked the flavor. I grew up eating vegetarian “meat” options in the 1970s and this “meatloaf” is very innovative. This is a great vegan option and your vegan guest will definitely be satisfied. Thumbs up, way up!

Fresh Fruit Floating Island

Fresh Fruit Floating Island is fluffy baked meringue “floating” in a sea of vanilla crème anglais, topped with blackberry drizzle and fresh berries. This was an awesome dessert! It’s light, fluffy, and not too sweet. The vanilla crème anglais reminded me of Italian zabaglione, almost custardy in flavor. The fresh berries were a nice touch. Thumbs up, way up!
