Tbilisi’s old Sololaki neighborhood is a district of 19th- and early 20th-century European bourgeois architecture with a twist. Behind the entrance of each building is an individual courtyard, a private world wrapped in communal wooden balconies decorated with laundry drying on the lines. Locals call the design an “Italian courtyard,”when in fact the building style is distinctively Tbilisian.
Sololaki has suffered from neglect over the past century, yet it is slowly seeing a renaissance as new restaurants, bars and cafés are popping up, infusing the neighborhood with fresh attitudes and good vibes. Their culinary innovations are also turning the humble district into a foodie’s paradise.
This event, created by Culinary Backstreets in conjunction with Atlas Obscura’s “Obscura Day,”, is set in a Tbilisi “Italian Courtyard” and celebrates Giorgoba – St. George’s Day – at the neighborhood’s leading gastronomic cultural center, Ezo. The family-owned restaurant is no stranger to hosting outstanding parties in their courtyard and this Spring-time celebration in honor of the patron saint of Georgia will be a montage of Georgian BBQ (mtsvadi), wine and live blues with Georgia’s premier blues band, The Natural Born Lovers.
Price includes a serving of pork mtsvadi, tsnili pickled assortment, bread and two glass of wine.
