This evening, the folks from Peaches and Smoke Joint opened up a new branch of their burgeoning Brooklyn empire. On the corner of Hancock and Tompkins, Peaches Hothouse expands on the southern offerings that Peaches specializes in.
I stopped in to get a sneak peek.
Tonight, and for the next two weeks, they will be serving a limited menu as a part of Brooklyn Dine-In, but co-owner Craig Samuel stresses that everything is a work in progress.
The menu, described as ‘new southern,’ goes a bit more adventurous than the relatively staid menu found at Peaches. Think beef cheeks braised for six hours and fried green tomatoes with bacon aioli.

The star of the menu is going to be Nashville-style spicy fried chicken, which will make it’s first appearance in a couple weeks. In the meantime, Laura’s Fried Chicken, above, looks like an amazing substitute. I didn’t get to eat anything when I stopped in tonight, but I was certainly tempted to stick around for a few courses.
There were plenty of familiar faces tonight, including a pair of regulars I see at the bar at Peaches nearly every day and Lloyd, the owner of Bread-Stuy, who had the distinction of getting the first serving of food out the kitchen. I was glad to see the neighborhood support, I know I’ll be back soon.
Follow the jump for the current offerings and more photos of the space.
