Abel Brown, a southern kitchen and oyster
bar located in Surrey Center, is renowned for
its authentic approach to Southern cuisine.
The name, Abel Brown, is a nod to and
celebration of the restaurant’s blended cultural roots. Originally a traditional folk
ballad about the everyday man, Abel Brown has become synonymous with modern
cuisine delivered with the charm and tradition reserved for high company.
Abel Brown is the brainchild of Todd Schafer, an experienced chef who brings more than just good food to the table. Inspired by his mother’s cooking, Todd ventured into the kitchen at the age of 15 and never left. His career took him to Atlanta where he worked at Ciboulette under Chefs Jean Banchet and Thomas Coohill, as well as Provence in Washington D.C., and Pinot Blanc in the Napa Valley.
Open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday, Abel Brown transforms dining out into a memorable experience featuring a refined selection of cocktails, beers and wine, flawless service staff, and an enticing, ingredient-driven menu in simply elegant surroundings.
