It is rightly said, you can take a man out of the south but you can not take the south
out of a man. Southern food is the comfort food for anyone coming from
Tennessee, Georgia, South Carolina, Texas and more. And given how many
people move to New York from all these states, they all need that amazing food
to remind them of home.
And the best part of living in the city is that you do not have to do any kind of
long-distance bus travel to find your favourite southern food. Here are some of
the best joints serving the southern food as it is meant to be.
1. Pies ’n’ Thighs
166 S. 4th St., at Driggs Ave., Williamsburg; 347-529- 6090
Situated at Driggs Avenue, Pies ‘n’ Thighs is rated as the topmost southern food
joint in all of New York. They have a huge menu consisting of some of
the best apple pies you can find anywhere. They also have some very filling and
rich cheese grits and a very special hot sauce biscuit which will leave you
wanting for more. Also while you are there, ask for their special dressings that
they serve with their salads.
2. Peaches Hothouse
415 Tompkins Ave., at Hancock St., Bedford-Stuyvesant; 718-483- 9111
Peaches Hothouse puts a modern spin on the classic southern delicacies to make
it more appealing to the masses. Their speciality is the fried chicken which has
the oh so perfect crispy skin that you can top with their hot sauce to make it
even better. But beware of the extra hot house sauce as it can prove hazardous
to your mouth lining if not eaten carefully.
3. The Commodore
366 Metropolitan Ave., at Havemeyer St., Williamsburg; 718-218- 7632
The Commodore is Brooklyn’s finest when it comes to southern food, as
attested by the cast of Arrested Development when they made a beeline for this
restaurant while shooting in the area. Their deep fried chicken and house styled
nachos are certain to make you feel like you are in food heaven.
