While walking down a random alley after a night of shopping in Union Square, I stumbled upon this new restaurant called Hops and Hominy. I saw great reviews on Yelp and decided to give it a shot.
Buttermilk Fried Chicken – AWESOME flavor with a little kick in the end of heat. Great texture in the batter and even the chicken breast was moist. I would say it is comparable to the fried chicken at Front Porch. The jalapeno cornbread and creamed collards that come with the dish were ok.
Shrimp & Grits – Great flavor without being overpowered with cheese. It is not too heavy and the subtle texture of the grits really comes through pleasantly.
Fresh Cornbread w/ Honey Butter – Really good texture and flavor to the cornbread with a kiss of sweetness with the honey butter. This comes complimentary from the restaurant.
Mac & Cheese – It’s a solid dish, but not amazing to order that dish again.
There is a wide selection of beer here and the bartender will offer you any sample on tap before ordering. Overall, I had a great experience here and would not hesitate to stop in again for that fried chicken. Hops and Hominy is right across from the Banana Republic flagship store on Grant. The entrance is hidden into a small alleyway but you will easily spot their signs guiding you inside.
