New York Chronicles: Peaches HotHouse and Nashville Hot Chicken

Restaurants, Travel, USA  /   /  By Annie

Mmm…fried chicken and crispy grits. Ain’t no better place to go if you’re craving southern brunch than Peaches HotHouse. While we had originally intended on going to the original Peaches, an unexpected flood rendered that option unavailable. But our other option was mighty fine!

Iced coffee perhaps? Or if you’re feeling up to it, opt for one of their unique cocktail creations for only $5 during brunch. Note: they do not have any espresso beverages so don’t go getting any ideas about ordering a soy latte–you came to the wrong place.

If you’re feeling up for a challenge, follow Jackson’s lead and go for the Booker T— a hearty burger topped with a piece of their famous hot spicy chicken. Good luck figuring out how to eat it!

With any order of hot chicken ($13 for three pieces) you also get a choice of a southern side. Other than the crispy grits (pictured in first photo), you can also select from creamy grits, kale, asparagus, macaroni and cheese, butterbeans and hamhock… and the list goes on. The bacon-potato salad pictured above is probably one of most sought-after options, for good reason.

Final Note: Although I don’t think that much fried chicken before noon is good for anyone’s diet, it really hit the spot that day. If I came back, I’d probably order it all over again. There’s also a reason it’s called hot chicken–the dredge encases a spice rub beneath the skin that is designed to bring you to tears–although a mild version is also available for the faint of heart. All in all, this little restaurant’s Nashville-inspired southern vibe is really quite the delightful experience. Just make sure to show up right at 11am to beat the New York brunch rush!
