Fodor's Expert Review Peaches HotHouse

$$ Bedford-Stuyvesant and Crown Heights Lively Fodor's Choice
Fried chicken is nearly ubiquitous in Bed-Stuy, but no one does it better than Peaches HotHouse, sister restaurant to Peaches, just a few blocks east. One look at your crispy, juicy "hot chicken"—a specialty in Nashville, made with a spice rub either before or after it's breaded—and it’s clear you’re in for a delicious meal. Here it's served "regular, hot, or extra hot," and paired with traditional Southern sides such as collard greens and creamy grits. Come late to lunch or early for dinner, and you’ll avoid the wait. Super-casual wooden tables make this a great spot to bring the family, or grab a seat at the bar if you're dropping in solo for a quick bite.
