Food brings folks together and no better example of this can be found than at Hoppin’ Johns. Come Sunday morning, the spare but shiny-clean, brick-walled dining room (adorned only by a few simple ceiling fans and long picture windows) is filled with well-dressed ladies and gents in their Baptist-church best sipping sweet tea; young J. Crew-clad couples reading the weekend papers; hip-hop kids in slouchy jeans; and makeup-free, graying lefty ladies who lunch. They all come together for soulfully satisfying plates of made-to-order flour-and-paprika-dipped fried chicken, fluffy flapjacks, steamy bowls of grits—with cheese, if you say please. If time is of the essence, order to go from the front steam-table counter and be sure to peek into the reach-in fridge to see what kind of cake there is to tempt you past the collards.
