“The Hot Brown is the most famous dish our city is known for. If you are going to try it you should go to the place it was invented. J Graham's Cafe inside The Brown Hotel is a gorgeous historic hotel. To save a few dollars catch the lunch buffet where you can try a hot brown and other tasty dishes.”
