The CC Times has nothing but good things to say about West Oakland's Brown Sugar Kitchen, the new soul food hotspot by onetime Food Network personality Tanya Holland: "... a new place in West Oakland is managing something rare: a fusion of African-American home-style and Southern regional, with the skill of an experienced chef with serious chops and an obvious eye. It makes you think of Bette's Ocean View Diner on Fourth Street. Already, just over two months after it opened, it's not hard to imagine Brown Sugar Kitchen (hereafter called "BSK") inspiring the stiff loyalty Bette's enjoys ... Holland's cornmeal waffle and buttermilk fried chicken ($12) is simply the best version of the Harlem classic you're likely to taste." [CCT]
