'Tri-Level' Amy Ruth's to Open in Old Gage & Tollner in January?



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.”

An old-timer tells me that years ago he ate in a "private" dining room on the second floor. He said it has a fireplace.

I ate there not that long ago, maybe 5 years ago when it was still Gage and Tollner. The upstairs was still private rooms and the stairs leading up to the third was open and cleaned so I imagine it was up there as well. I think this is the best option for a beautiful interior like that.
