THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Sweet Georgia Brown's Restaurant Review

: Owner Cassandra Black made a courageous decision to relocate her successful downtown eatery H&H Barbecue, after it was destroyed by fire, to the posh site that was the high-end Manhattan restaurant, renaming it Sweet Georgia Brown's. The foyer's etched-glass Manhattan skyline remains intact, as does the dining room that feels like a Southern mansion with its white columns and subdued lighting. The dark wood bar and its basic lounge provide the venue for the restaurant's Sunday soul food jazz brunch created by chef Darron Black, the owner's son. The fried catfish strips appetizer is the first sign of the gargantuan portions to follow. Chicken is delicious, coming on a bed of rice or mashed potatoes and smothered in gravy. We also like the barbecue links---four large ones covering the platter. Among popular fried choices are the red snapper and shrimp. Two sides accompany each entrée, from a long list that includes collard or mustard greens, and red beans and rice. Steak aficionados like the 14-ounce rib-eye and 24-ounce porterhouse. The daily lunch menu mirrors most of the dinner items, with smaller portions at lower prices. Among sweet temptations are peach cobbler and caramel cake.
