Does anyone know of a Georgian restaurant in the Bay Area? I love Georgian food, but this is one of the only cuisines that I haven't found anywhere here!

  1. You mean traditional Southern food served in places like Atlanta, Memphis and Birmingham?

      Hiko, I imagine she's looking for the national cuisine of Georgia (link below).

        When I was attending a graduate school in the Deep South, the largest complaint by local students was that they could not find Southern restaurants when they traveled to California.

        I have seen several Russian restaurants located north of the Golden Gate Park, including Russian Renaissance Restaurant on Geary Blvd.

        Although I am not familiar with Russian food in Northern California, I feel it is basically based on eastern part of Russia--near Japan. Some of items in the Richmond district's Russian groceries are the identical to what people in Hokkaido, Japan eat.

        No - the cuisine of the Republic of Georgia!

          Just before I found your first post, I was reading sports news about the Atlanta Braves.

      3. Traktir is a Russian/Georgian restaurant in the outer Richmond (around 42/Balboa if I remember correctly -- directly across the street from a pretty good Egyptian place). Lots of Georgian specialties, and some Georgian wines as well. Definitely worth a trip. It was reviewed by Paul Reidinger of the Bay Guardian at my suggestion and he gave it a great review.
