“There are three elements to any restaurant: The people, the food and the environment,” said George Hauer, owner of George’s at the Cove. But what he and his staff have done is take those elements and elevate them to an unique dining experience by building three different places in one, on three separate floors — California Modern, George’s Bar, and Ocean Terrace — all of which are highlighted by panoramic ocean views.
