The southern-twanged follow-up to ultra trendy Freeman’s, Peels swaps its brother restaurant’s manly cabin feel for an airy two stories of high ceilings, light woods, and natural green accents. The culinary complement to this atmospheric hospitality comes courtesy of chefs (and life partners) Ginger Pierce Madson and Preston Madson (who do double duty at Freeman’s). They pay apt homage to the south without diving belly-first into comfort food. Charcuterie is house-made, along with the jalapeño jam you spread on it. Mixologist Yana Volfson works as comfortably in spirits-driven as farm-to-bar mixology, delivering the final touch to Peels easy-livin’ with cocktails like the deliciously bitter Perfect Old Pal.
