Fodor's Review

An elegant New South eatery and a favorite hangout of local politicians—First Lady Michelle Obama famously broke bread here with the mayor's wife and Second Lady Jill Biden—Georgia Brown's serves catfish two ways, either grilled in spicy jerk seasoning or fried in cornmeal; thick, rich she-crab soup spiked with sherry; and blackened salmon with cucumber noodles. Fried green tomatoes are filled with goat cheese, and a pecan pie is made with bourbon and imported Belgian dark chocolate. The Sunday "jazz brunch" adds live music and a decadent chocolate fondue fountain to the mix, and the ample happy hour menu is available all afternoon on Saturday. The airy, curving dining room has white honeycomb windows and unusual ceiling ornaments of bronze ribbons.
