Downtown Augusta restaurant mentioned in GQ

  • Follow Business

Downtown Augusta’s Frog Hollow Tavern was mentioned this month in a GQ article about the nation’s best restaurants and bars.

In the article, GQ’s Brett Martin went on a cross-country trek to find “the most delicious food in the most unlikely places.”

Martin wrote: “That is to say that the coasts and big cities long ago gave up their monopoly on good food scenes. ... I tasted it in a smoky, barrel-aged Manhattan at Frog Hollow Tavern in Augusta, Georgia.”

Sean Wight, chef and owner of Frog Hollow Tavern at 1282 Broad St., said the smoky, barrel-aged Manhattan is a classic bourbon cocktail that is aged for 45 days in a whiskey barrel, then strained and poured. Wight has sold the drink for about a year.

“It’s a newer technique that people are using mostly in larger cities. It’s popular here,” Wight said.

Frog Hollow Tavern also sells the barrel-aged Martini, Rob Roy and Negroni.

Sounds like the restaurant

Sounds like the restaurant part needs to be left out. No food items were mentioned.

Congrats Frog Hollow

In my opinion Frog Hollow is the best restaurant in Augusta
Never had a bad meal here. Love to support local non chain restaurants
This restaurant is so good you would think it would be in a much larger city than Augusta
