I recently went to Peels for lunch during a holiday visit to NYC. This restaurant was just opening up when I moved out of the East Village and back down South a few years back. After hearing rave reviews from friends ever since, I had to try it out for myself. The restaurant has a great layout and doesn't feel like the typical cramped NYC restaurant/bar. My brother and I sat in a sunny booth on the second level. After an excellent round of drinks, we ordered brunch. As a Southerner who always lamented the inability of getting a biscuit anywhere in NYC when I lived there, I was definitely pleased to find a biscuit on the menu. Both my brother and I opted for the "build a biscuit," going with the fried chicken, scrambled eggs, and cheddar. We also ordered sides of jalapeno cheddar grits and thick cut house bacon. Words cannot convey how amazing all of these were. I definitely plan on going back at some point in the future, especially because the dinner menu looked equally great.
