Amy Ruth's a No Go in Downtown Brooklyn

We are so bummed: The Brooklyn Eagle reports that Harlem soul food restaurant Amy Ruth’s, which had signed a lease for the former Gage & Tollner space on Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn, is probably not coming here after all.

Robert F. Hebron IV of Ingram & Hebron Realty told the Eagle on Monday that the deal had fallen through.

Zagats had reported that "a tri-level eatery" would open in the space in January 2008.

Full details here.

I can't say I'm too surprised.

There was an article in the Times recently about the declining popularity of soul food in Harlem--if soul food can't make it there, it have a hard go of it here.

Personally (and I know I'm probably in the minority here), I never really thought that Amy Ruth's was a good match for the G&T space anyway.

Hope the owners can find a suitable replacement quickly.
