G Prime Steakhouse to open in Wilmington
Giorgios Hospitality Group is about to revolutionize the dining scene in Wilmington with the highly anticipated debut of G Prime Steak & Cellar, a dynamic steakhouse capturing the essence of Wilmington-style cuisine.
Mark your calendars for November 24, 2023, as this is an event you won’t want to miss. The visionary behind GHG, Giorgio Bakatsias, has meticulously crafted G Prime with the intention of providing a multifaceted dining experience for the local community. Whether you desire an intimate dinner in the steak room, a lively social gathering at the bar or terrace, or a private celebration in the Palm Room, G Prime has all your occasions covered.
G Prime draws inspiration from the surrounding coastal environment and the opulent allure synonymous with the Wrightsville Beach area. Inside, you will be greeted by a striking color palette featuring burgundy and teal hues. Local artwork, sourced from nearby talent, adds vibrant pops of pink and gold throughout the establishment. Bronze animal heads gracefully overlook the bar, while beautiful crystal and brass lighting fixtures adorn the ceiling, creating an ambiance of elegance and creativity around every corner.
GHG, renowned for its commitment to providing authentic dining experiences, boasts an expanding collection of restaurants. Notably, Kipos Hellenic Cuisine, GHG’s newest Greek restaurant in Wilmington, has achieved remarkable success within its first 10 months of operation, showcasing the group’s steadfast dedication to the local community.
While respecting the historical essence of the previous Chop House, G Prime skillfully merges the building’s architectural framework with an entirely new atmosphere, resulting in an awe-inspiring transformation.
Adding to the excitement, G Prime welcomes the highly esteemed Executive Chef Kevin Draper, who has garnered recognition for his exceptional leadership at Bin 54, a prestigious steakhouse located in Chapel Hill. Chef Draper’s expertise will be showcased in G Prime’s kitchen, where he will curate a menu highlighting the finest, thoughtfully sourced beef, including American and Japanese wagyu. Complementing the steak selection, G Prime will offer a carefully curated assortment of fish and vegetables sourced from local farms.
Bakatsias, the creative mastermind behind GHG and G Prime, cannot contain his enthusiasm for this project. He emphasizes, “I felt compelled to create a distinctive steakhouse experience that captures the essence of Wilmington, and G Prime is the culmination of that vision.”
