99: Butter Sweet Potato Pecan Cheesecake

This dish is a chef Greg Brown specialty, and if you haven't been to the Mahogany Grille, a neo-cassic soul food joint in the heart of Miami Gardens, it's reason enough to go. You also might see recently inaugurated baseball Hall of Famer Andre "the Hawk" Dawson there. He owns the joint with his brothers.
