One of DC’s earliest and best attempts to upscale Low Country cooking, Georgia Brown’s makes the case for saying that Washington is, in fact, a Southern city. Soul music plays softly in the warm-wood dining room; cornbread and dense, creamy biscuits, served with sweet butter, accompany the entrées. Fried green tomatoes, a showpiece of the restaurant, involve thin slices of the vegetable layered with herbed cream cheese, breaded, and laced with a spicy remoulade. In another twist on tradition, there are even a few decent vegetarian options. Beloved of local politicos, the restaurant serves power lunches, dinners and a Sunday jazz brunch.
