Peaches Shrimp and Crab: Brooklyn Brunch

IMG_6920.JPGLet me start of by saying that I am a Brooklynite who doesn’t really brunch. I know, it doesn’t make sense. All the beautiful people in Brookyn get decked out (stylish not Sunday Best) to leisurely hang at their favorite brunch spot. They don’t mind waiting on long lines to feast on sweet and savory fare.

This weekend, a friend mentioned a brunch spot that serves Southern eats that is contemporary yet still homely. She showed me the food pics from Peaches Shrimp and Crab online and my tastebuds were immediately piqued.

I made the decision then and there that I was going to try the Shrimp and Grits. It would officially be my first time trying grits. I know, don’t ask. You don’t want to know. Fast forward and, well, my first taste of grits was worth the wait. This creamy, parmesan laced goodness was perfect and the shrimp was the quintessential compliment. Just all creaminess and melt in your mouth goodness.

Perfect plate of Shrimp and Grits.

The menu is simple but good.

The full bar just in case you want to skip the grits and head straight to the cocktails.

The staff is busy but attentive.

The Scene:

It is Christmas time so tree greeted us at the entrance. The decor is minimal and the walls are what looks like original brick from the old Brooklyn building.

There is a large glass window lined with real greenery, live plants.

Brooklyn is for the Fashionable Folk. There is a constant stream of stylish Brooklynites lounging and enjoying the scene.

For the folks who only check for ratings, the spot got an “A”.

      Thank You! It was a spur of the moment brunch but so worth it. I went out on a limb and out of my comfort zone with my order and found a new favorite.
