Fried Green Tomatoes Review

Though this downtown Italian spot bears no relation to the 1991 movie, it does offer the chance to try the eponymous appetizer, here done up with a melted cheese topping. It's a fitting way to start your meal here. Follow it up with expertly done espresso-encrusted filet mignon, seared jumbo sea scallops or a duck osso bucco over mashed potatoes. The tin ceiling and exposed-brick walls bump up the charm in the restaurant's setting in the historic 1838 Dowling building.
