Durham's George's Garage closes

Posted by on Mon, Jul 6, 2009 at 12:17 PM

After 15 years of feeding big lunchtime crowds at its popular hot and cold buffet bar and offering sit-down fine dining featuring seafood and sushi,  Ninth Street institution George's Garage closed its doors last week.

A spokesman for owner Giorgios Bakatsias says the lease has expired on the building, and that Bakatsias is pursuing "new ventures." The 15,000 square foot space also housed a bakery and a market for takeout food, as well as an adjacent private party space and lounge called the G-loft.

Bakatsias welcomes feedback and input from former patrons and the public on the restaurant's Web site, www.garagerestaurant.com.
