THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Sugar Magnolia Restaurant Review

: Accidentally sharing its name with a song by the Grateful Dead, Sugar Magnolia would have been an unlikely hangout for the legendary rock band that blasted through the 1980's---unless the musicians were partial to the middle-American eats and squeaky-clean atmosphere. Crafted from a turn-of-the-20th-century storefront on funky-trendy Magazine Street, the restaurant is a stripped-down and revved-up study in brick, wood and iron that fairly hollers casual. Decent sandwiches and salads share the kitchen's focus with some spins on a few Southern classics: expertly fried oysters, fried green tomatoes, a catfish BLT and blackened shrimp. The hamburgers don't rise above the okay level, but the soft-shell crab sandwich is a winner, as is the chocolate cake. Crab cakes are long on filler and short on crab. But the cornbread is free.
