DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — This newspaper has learned that the famed Harlem soul food restaurant, Amy Ruth’s, which signed a lease for the former Gage & Tollner restaurant space at 372-374 Fulton St. on the Fulton Mall in Downtown Brooklyn last October, may not be coming to Brooklyn after all.

  • Nooooooooooooo!

    This makes me sad :(
  • Me too. I love soul food, and was thrilled that I wouldn't have to go allllll the way to Harlem for an Amy Ruth's fix! Dammit!
  • This deal was probably a victim of the downturn in the economy. The bank might not have been willing to give Amy Ruth's loans to open a new location. It's a shame because I think they would have had a big audience on Fulton Mall particularly with the Brooklyn Tabernacle mega church just nearby.
  • Brooklyn needs some slammin soul food!
