I live right here in Brooklyn,but when i want to go out i always go to the city. My brother found this place online and i happy to said i have a new place to go to right here in Bk. The food was so good . There's a Extra Hot Chicken on their menu and i mean hot( tears falling from your eyes HOT). i had the fish with asparagus it was to die for and the triple brownie is a sin. It wasn't too expansive the bank wasn't broken. the service was good a little bit of a wait for the food but the drinks came fast.(thats a good thing if you didn't know) The atmosphere was very southern the place is small but their used the space their had wisely

In my opinion superman is reviewing the wrong restaurant... he just sounds bitter especially if he's going to say that if you dont eat a crabcake in 2 min it'll morph into some stale throw away. Sauce doesn't make crab meat juicy therefore if it's dried out, it'll remain hard. But I disgress. I had the shrimp with creamy grits which were super rich and tasted heavenly. They lacked all cheese flavor, because there is no cheese in the grits lol. All I tasted was cream, butter, white wine, and soft (yet still textured) gritty goodness. My date had the oyster po boy special which was out of this world as well. The giant plump oysters were well seasoned and lightly battered and didn't have any sort of fishy taste. During my last oyster experience, in a sub-standard bbq restaurant, the fried oysters were stuffed with dime sized meat pieces and then filled with this gross white gelatinous mush (obviously from canned oysters) that tasted gross. Peaches' oysters were 1 1/2 times the size of a dollar coin and nothing but the oyster and the batter was present. With this dish my date ordered a size of asparagus which were seared simply and better tasting than any asparagus I've ever had. He said that the flavor was from the grill.. They should definitely scrape it off and bottle it (I know, eww.) To finish off the meal we shared the brown butter cake which was soft, rich, smooth, and ridiculously creamy. He liked the bourbon glaze and the outside crust, and I loved the soft, doughy inside so luckily we didn't have to joust with our forks over each bite. This meal was definitely calorically indulgent, with each bite richer than the last and at least 2 sticks of butter coating my stomach for the next two days. But that's standard in southern cooking. The only thing that I found disappointing was the side of kale my date ordered. It was overboiled and they used too much molasses to cook it down which made it unbearably sweet; it didn't help that it was delivered to the table still soaking in it's molasses filled bath which prevented any of the sweetness from draing out. But that one side doesn't impact my view on their food offerings at all. I've decided that I'm going back for brunch ASAP! I can't wait to wrap my tongue around their famous fried chicken and waffles along with their table side french press coffee. The atmosphere is intimate and romantic but with a very down home feel, plus the place is SPOTLESS. The whole experience was just great!

I have nothing bad to say about the food... I'm west indian so i don't mind heat or spice at all (it was good for me, but not too much)... The Mac & Cheese was different but good (i think they put a little cinnamon) - I'd order it again and i like the bread.. reminds me of jamaican hardough *lol* Very soft too... Ok, so all that said... On to the real issue - The WAITRESSS was not very good at all. She seemed absentminded and didn't greet the patrons that were just coming into the restaurant... she would liiterally ignore them for a good 2 mins! Not even a little, "Hello, I'll be with you shortly..." It just seemed strange esp since she did it more than once. Also, she took away our sweet potato fries before we were done without asking... then comes back a min or two later to ask if we were "done with that"... We just saved her the embarrassment and said, "yes". These are hard times so i wish no one to lose their job... all i'm asking is that the staff be trained better... at the end of the day, poor service can break a restaurant... Good addition to the neighborhood though.

I'm a local and a concierge by trade so I know my restaurants. I think this food doesn't deserve the credit it does in Time Out. I wonder how much they got paid to talk about there new dry chicken. I only go to there first restaurant cuz their peaches brand is not worthy enough to be a chain yet even though peaches is right around the corner. I have gone three times and that is out of extreme hunger. They claimed two times there is no cheese in the grits and when I ask them for butter they look at me crazy. I hate restaurants that won't let you tweek your food much less deny what they put in it. Out of several things I tried the only thing that tasted great was the crabcakes. You have to eat them fast otherwise they will get dry due to no tartar/aoli sauces. I'm a New Yorker with Alabama roots. I don't know where these selections came from but they are not fooling me. I will try the other one on my street (mac and lewis) and see if they deserve to be next to bread stuy.

There was a long wait for the food but it was well worth it especially the Salmon and Trout. The food was very filling but you have to leave room for the desert. The pies/cakes are great.

I love the lump crab rice bowl delicious. I enjoy good food. Trust me, I went to Italy and switzerland for food...The BBQ shrimp is delish! The Pineapple upside down cake with a scope of ice cream I love. The cake is not soggy...yayyy...I go at least once every other week...to treat myself.
