Zagats reports that January 2008 is the due date for Harlem's famous soul-food restaurant Amy Ruth's to open "a tri-level eatery" in the former Downtown Brooklyn Gage & Tollner space. (We don't recall the old Gage & Tolner being tri-level, or even bi-level.)
The planned configuration: a dining room on the ground floor, private dining spaces above and a bar area that spreads across two floors.
McBrooklyn took a look inside the space yesterday. Nothing has visibly changed since May, when we last visited.
The Brooklyn Eagle reports that: “The menu will contain all of the Harlem eatery’s traditional favorites as well as new choices giving a nod to the restaurant’s Downtown Brooklyn past and present.”
