The last remaining location of Brown Sugar Kitchen, celebrity chef Tanya Holland’s famed Oakland soul food restaurant, has closed after almost 15 years, as first reported by Oaklandside. The restaurant’s closure just before Christmas was originally supposed to be temporary, but Holland has now decided to make it permanent.
“When you’re not fully resourced for decades, it adds up,” Holland told SFGATE. “I hung in there as long as I could. I fought the resistance probably a lot longer than I should have.”
