Georgia Brown's Restaurant Review: Southern cooking appeals to the child in us who loves crunchy fried chicken and mashed potatoes splashed with a rich brown gravy. Of course, Georgia Brown’s---a downtown Southern-food mecca---is really for sophisticated adults, with its upscale décor, bar area and menu; just check the place during cocktail hour or at lunch. But the warm country biscuits and cornbread sticks, the crispy catfish fingers and the cherry pepper vinegar are lush reminders of traditional Southern (that is, South Carolinian) home cooking. Other treats? Charleston she-crab soup, fried green tomatoes, Carolina gumbo and jumbo lump crab cakes. The fried chicken is heart-stoppingly good. For dessert, servers tempt with a tray displaying Key lime pie, sweet potato cheesecake, peach cobbler and bourbon pecan pie---all served with a scoop of Jack Daniels ice cream.
