The comforts of home.

People come to New York from around the world looking for opportunity. This city has been built neighborhood by neighborhood by immigrants looking for a new start. Upon arrival they would settle into neighborhoods that reminded them of home. Whether they were Irish, Italian, Polish or Chinese, they would look for the comforts of home.

The comforts of a familiar language, culture, religion and, of course, food made the transition to living in a foreign place easier. This is the reason New York has always been one of the great food cities, the shear diversity of the food available. And if the food from home wasn't available, then supplying it became the perfect business opportunity.

This spirit still exists today, and the latest example comes all they way from Georgia.

The Bobwhite Lunch & Supper Counter

Like the scores of immigrants before them, the folks behind Bobwhite missed the comfort foods of home. Fried Chicken, Pimento Cheese, Grits, Chick-fil-A. From this empty hole in their hearts and stomachs Bobwhite was born. A nice, small spot with a small, focused menu, Bobwhite brings Southern cooking and hospitality to the East Village.

The menu is simple. Two chicken suppers. Three hot sandwiches, three cold sandwiches and some salads and sides. Some good beer. This small menu gives the kitchen the ability to focus and deliver. The Fried Chicken Sandwich is the model of simplicity. Fried chicken breast on a roll with bread and butter pickles. It is good. Hot sauce and honey are on the counter for the addition of heat and sweet.

New Yorkers tend to shy away from grits because what we have generally had has been inedible. The Cheddar Cheese grits at Bobwhite will show you the truth and explain why they are a southern staple. Southern, cheese flavored comfort.

Fried chicken, grilled chicken, pork chop sandwich. Egg Salad, Pimento Cheese, Chicken salad sandwiches. Yes, they have biscuits. With the southern grub comes the southern hospitality. Nice people who genuinely want you to enjoy their food. These are good people making good food. So pull up a stool, relax and enjoy. They will take good care of you.
