John Seymour's soul food staple, which now has locations in Williamsburg and the Lower East Side, is like KFC takeout for hip city kids. Bench-style and low-table seating makes it easy for families to join in on the deep-fried fun. Feast on crawfish hush puppies, mac and cheese with grueyere and aged white cheddar or bigger plates like fan-favorite fried chicken and waffles or shrimp and grits.

I can't think of a better brunch spot than Sweet Chick. The wait staff are wonderful and...oh my goodness, the Chicken & Waffles ($16) are to die for. It's the best fried chicken I've ever had. My fiance ordered the Smoked Pork Hash ($15) for himself—neither of us shared. For families, there's table and bench-style seating, so there's plenty of room for everyone.
