At this pioneering Bed-Stuy restaurant, owners Craig Samuel and Ben Grossman (both of the Smoke Joint) ably merge two trends—Greenmarket and upscale Southern. Appetizers emphasize salads, like the toss of watermelon, arugula and spicy pickled ginger. The rest of the menu hews closer to Cajun and Creole standards: a juicy half chicken sports a salt-and-chili rub, and garlicky shrimp with tomato gravy are served over fluffy grits. Peaches is a progressive addition to a still-emerging ’hood—guts like those play well in the South, and in Brooklyn, too.

Brunch Brunch Brunch

I've tried this restaurant several times and brunch on the weekends seem to be the best thing about this restaurant. I prefer their wings and grits but their food just isn't the absolute BEST! 

What is good about this place is location and the atmosphere. There is good parking but I've noticed most people live close because it's in the middle of the neighborhood which is perfect! They also have a live band sometimes and offer outdoor seating when it's nice.

So why a 5 star because there isn't anything bad about his place. Great service, and okay food.
