George’s Place, Featured on ‘Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,’ Is On Our Cape May Food Tours
For nearly 15 years, the world has known what George’s Place is, ever since Guy Fieri visited the iconic Greek-inspired restaurant and featured it on “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” in 2010 (you can even see his literal stamp of approval on the exterior wall of the restaurant’s Beach Avenue location!)
However, for 42 years before that, George’s Place was already a Cape May tradition that Jenni Luteri, owner of the restaurant’s Washington Commons location, is continuing – while breaking barriers.
“At the time, there weren’t any female managing partners at Kara Restaurant Group, so I was really motivated to change that,” said Jenni, who worked at George’s Place’s Cape May Court House location for years before opening her own. “To show all our female employees that they can do it too, if they really want to.”
Every day, Jenni does just that as the restaurant serves classic Grecian dishes like saganaki, spanakopita and loukaniko, as well as coastally inspired entrées including grilled salmon and six-pepper tuna.
Here, customers can see their meals being made right in front of them thanks to the restaurant’s open kitchen, so that they can “enjoy the sights, sounds and aromas from behind the line – it’s a true sensory experience,” Jenni said.
On our Cape May Food Tours, visitors can get a true taste of George’s Place when they serve their ever-popular crab cake benedict to our tourgoers, featuring a homemade broiled crab cake with Hollandaise.
