Printers Alley Restaurant Review

: Homesick southerners will like Printers Alley, a fun-filled clone of the many bar-food music joints found in Nashville. Named after Printers Alley, the famous alley and nightclub district in Nashville, the restaurant brings southern favorites and country music to NYC in a homey, lived-in setting. Brick walls adorned with neon signs, three stages for music set-up (or dining tables), and an outdoor play area invite camaraderie. Menu-wise, choose from fried green tomatoes, hush puppies and pimento cheese dip to start. Complete your spread with sandwiches (smoked pulled pork, sloppy joes or fried chicken) or heartier plates like shrimp ‘n grits; hot catfish with collard greens; or hot chicken, brined and slow cooked in chicken fat. The attractive bar serves up alcoholic slushies, cocktails with southern-inspired names (Old Rocky Top, Smokey Mountain Rain) and a mix of regional beers. Live country music is scheduled several days a week. The place is also popular with commuters heading to Port Authority after work.
