Georgia Brown's opened on McPherson Square in 1993, and focuses on the cuisine of Lowcountry of South Carolina. The menu includes a variety of Southern staples, such as fried chicken, shrimp and grits, and Charleston perlau, a dish made with Carolina red rice, andouille sausage, duck, and shrimp. The focal point of the dining room is the bronze ceiling art, designed to resemble the branches of an oak tree. Live jazz adds to the atmosphere on Wednesday nights, and during Southern Comfort Hours (weekdays from 3 to 7 p.m., and Saturdays from noon to 5 p.m.), there are discounts on small plates.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
