Soul Food Comes to G&T Space


Harlem eatery Amy Ruth's will be opening a location in the former home of Gage and Tollner in Downtown Brooklyn.

At the BHB Metroplex, we're excited as we're told that the spot is a favorite of singer John Legend. Not only that, but there's a chicken and waffle dish named after Rev. Al Sharpton (we just hope the dish is more outspoken about the recent hate crimes in Brooklyn Heights than its namesake has been).

Crains: Amy Ruth's to Launch…: Amy Ruth’s, the upper Manhattan restaurant that has become an institution status in just nine years, will open a second eatery in downtown Brooklyn.Its owners have signed a lease for the site formerly occupied by Gage & Tollner, a landmark Brooklyn restaurant that closed last year. Amy Ruth’s on Fulton Street will be in a commercial district better known for shopping—it draws 100,000 shoppers daily—but local business leaders are pushing to make it a dining mecca as well.
