Maggie Brown

Maggie Brown, which opened in 2004, was named after the 99-year-old grandmother of co-owner Chelsea Altman. And the restaurant does bring international cuisine to the table grandma style. With a bit of Mexican here, and a bit of Italian there, and a whole lot of what chef and co-owner, Johannes Sanzin, calls “Southern-influenced American gourmet comfort cuisine” in between, Maggie Brown’s menu has something for everyone.

Specialties include grilled yellowfin tuna with fennel salad and soy ginger vinaigrette; the red wine-braised short ribs; or the Southern fried chicken with mashed potatoes with biscuits and gravy on the side. Grandma’s hearty cookin’ is a tough act to follow, but a hefty slice of the rich peanut butter pie stands its ground — and then some. Or try the Key lime pie. Weekend brunch is served 10 am to 4 pm. Daily happy hours run from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm. Open Sunday through Thursday, from 10 am to 11 pm; Fridays and Saturdays, 10 am to midnight.
