Georgia Brown’s is your go to restaurant for fine southern cuisine in Washington, DC. I dined with Georgia Brown for a friend’s birthday and loved their eloquent and intimate décor, their comforting yet bourgeois food and their attentive service. We began our meal with a basket of bread that included biscuits and cornbread. Now you know, when a restaurant brings a bread basket to a table, your whole meal is represented by that bread basket. You can determine how good your meal will be by the bread. Well I knew by the biscuits, that I was in for a treat.
I had the Chef special as my appetizer which was the Shrimp bisque soup. I love lobster or shrimp bisque soup and the soup at Georgia Brown’s reminded me why it’s a great start to a meal. The soup was flavorful, and gave an extra kick. I ordered the Fried Chicken, Mashed Potatoes and Collard Greens as an entrée. The chicken was crispy and juicy on the inside. Lastly, I had the Peach Cobbler a la mode for dessert. The cobbler was my favorite part of the meal, it was perfection. So sorry but I ate it too fast and forgot to take a picture. Below is their Sweet Potato Cheesecake which I didn’t get a chance to try but I’m sure it was good.
It’s Restaurant Week in the DMV area again and this signature fine southern cuisine staple is joining in on the fun. The Metropolitan area’s Restaurant Week experience runs from August 17 to August 23 and includes over 200 restaurants. Georgia Brown’s is offering a full three course menu including Inspirations (Appetizers), Entrees and Desserts for $35.00.
