Winner of last year's Best Sure-Bet for Good Food and reigning in another year as Best Place for Lunch, GeoGeske, or G2, is still whetting patrons' palates with its consistently amazing dishes. Attentive waiters and talented chefs make business lunches as pleasurable as when you're off the clock. Lunch platters hang around $10 each, but the meals are worth every cent. Their lunch menu is served Monday through Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and includes scrumptious selections such as steak, shrimp, sashimi, salmon, salad, lobster, grilled veggies and pesto pasta. Add their calm, cool atmosphere to the list and G2 equals one popular joint. Prepare for reservations and a good tip. 2701 N. Stanton, 915-544-4242.
