Nestled in the heart of the theater district is Peach Keen, a groovy ’70s-inspired restaurant. Serving Southern comfort food, rich milkshakes and disco ball glitter cocktails in a retro setting.
I was late so my guest ordered crab and corn beignets ($13).They are The smoked paprika remoulade and pat had raved about these before I even walked in the door.
Our server Chelsea was cheerful, welcoming, and helpful.
I started with Peach bourbon chicken wings ($15) and Peach bourbon glaze, green onion. Very sweet, lacking the peach flavor, but melted off the bone.
Ordered a drink playful Disco Sally ($18).this is PK’s signature rum punch in a 20 oz light-up disco ball. This drink is powerful and punchy. You can also keep a cute light-up disco ball.
The next thing I wanted to try was peach green ($14) and Gem lettuce, candied peaches, toasted almonds, goat cheese and champagne vinaigrette. The peach was quite hard, and at first I thought it was an apple. They weren’t candied at all.
Next I ordered the Shrimp and Grits ($24). The grits are homage and delicious, the shrimp are flavorful and perfectly cooked.
The problem with Peachy Keen is that the good ones are great and the bad ones are inedible. We came back for biscuits, mac, cheese and dessert.Pat will definitely be back Crab and corn beignets. Times Square has always needed a place to eat delicious desserts and comfort food after the show. I think Peachy Keen will find a niche.
