A high-protein diet can help build muscle, which comes in handy for fighting off a shark that is also on a high-protein diet. Take a bite out of the circle of life with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of steak, seafood, and wine at Georges on Fifth, located in Wyatt Earp's former gambling hall and saloon in the Gaslamp Quarter. The culinary curators at Georges on Fifth serve a sophisticated menu of Kobe and certified angus steaks and seafood paired with an exquisite wine list in a picturesque Victorian building. Hunger pangs are duly quelled with an 8-ounce USDA prime filet mignon ($32), which can be coupled with a glass of Kendall Jackson chardonnay from Napa ($8.25) or Montes Alpha, a Chilean cabernet sauvignon ($11). Delve into seafood scrumptiousness with grilled halibut infused with a flavorful mélange of chipotle-tomato sauce, risotto, and cilantro oil ($26). Diners can soothe an apprehensive stomach with an appetizer of grilled portobello ($8) or by singing it a number about what school-bus wheels do.
- The steaks here are, of course, outstanding. Only Prime cuts are used, and the seafood is fresh off the boat that morning. - Jennifer Miner, Uptake
- Here's a real steak house! Run by a pro with 25 years in the business who attends to every detail; music, wines, wide selection on the menu, not just steaks. - sjmacdee, TripAdvisor
Georges on Fifth
Once the home of Wyatt Earp's gambling hall and saloon, Georges on Fifth also holds the distinction of being the most photographed building in the Gaslamp Quarter. Today, the venue casts off the sounds of tinny pianos for the aromas of Zagat-rated dishes, each painstakingly crafted by executive chef Jose Kelley. The flavors of certified Angus beef, Snake River Farms Kobe beef, and USDA Prime cuts heighten beneath port-wine and Jack Daniel's demi-glaces, and fresh, flaky seafood in the form of scallops, halibut, and salmon don equally delicate notes from herb-infused oils. With Chef Kelley's wine list made up of more than 50 West Coast and international varietals, diners can find a pleasing accompaniment to any dish.
Inside the celebrated eatery, romantic lighting emanates from ornate chandeliers and dances on exposed brick walls, wood accents, and the piano player's solar-powered hands. Portraits of San Diegans dot the interior walls to showcase the work of artist John Wismont, who held the Guinness Book of World Record’s title of “Most Prolific Portrait Painter” for nine years.
