Downtown Augusta restaurant mentioned in GQ

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.
