As if in response to the question—“So, is there an American cuisine?”—recently posed in a scholarly report by the James Beard Foundation, Craig Samuel and Ben Grossman would like to present Exhibit A, their Stuyvesant Heights bistro, Peaches. As the name suggests, the emphasis here is on southern cooking, most of it classic (shrimp and grits, blackened catfish sandwiches, fried green tomatoes), some of it a little creative (watermelon-and-country-ham salad). If that’s not American enough for you, Samuel and Grossman—who also own the Smoke Joint and The Pig Bar in Fort Greene—plan to use the restaurant’s outdoor garden for special events including clambakes, fish fries, and crawfish boils.
