Famous Harlem Soul Food Restaurant Coming to Gage & Tollner Space

The Brooklyn Eagle breaks the news that the famed Harlem soul food restaurant, Amy Ruth’s, has signed a lease for the former Gage & Tollner restaurant space at 372-374 Fulton St. on the Fulton Mall in Downtown Brooklyn.

New York Magazine, which awards the restaurant a “critic’s choice,” says it is a tribute to a southern grandmother’s cooking and to a number of noteworthy African Americans, suggesting that readers order “The Rev. Al Sharpton” (fried or smothered chicken and waffles), “The Stan Hoffman & Lu Willard” (BBQ spare ribs), and other soul-food staples.

Something tells us this might be exactly the right choice for this site.

UPDATE: “One thing you can expect to see in 12 to 18 months is downtown Brooklyn establishing a roster of great destination restaurants,” predicted Joseph Chan, president of the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership. Crain's NY Business

With Abolitionist Place right down the street, it seems like a pretty good fit. (About the gold teefs thing, just don't know.)
