The Fort Greene location of Peaches Hot House is one of the many Peaches offshoots that specializes in Nashville hot chicken. Bring yourself here when you need a reminder about why hot sauce matters, and don’t forget to add a side of mac and cheese to your order. The outdoor tables are in the middle of a big plaza, which means there’s more than enough space for you, your date, and your dog. Note: your meal will likely make it impossible for you to do anything else for the rest of your day - accept this fact as a part of its magic.
