Fried Green Tomatoes on Steriods

Ummm Hmmm.  This is what I’m talkin’ ’bout! Georgia Browns’s* former chef Darrell Hughes developed this version of FGT in 1995.  He moved to sister restaurant Paolo’s in DC’s Georgetown in 2009. He’s rocking Italian, “California Style” there! Just a couple more reasons to visit our nation’s Capitol!
