Appetizing aromas waft from cast-iron skillets at MP’s, where owner Connell Moss’s soul-warming comfort cuisine is served amid homespun furnishings redolent of the Deep South’s cozy country kitchens. Crisp golden cloaks cover moist cuts of fried chicken, crushing appetites with combos that encompass thighs and legs or breasts and wings. Plates are accompanied by one of eight southern sidekicks—including black-eyed peas, yams, baked beans, or the other truck driver from Smokey and the Bandit. One-of-a-kind trinkets and keepsakes line the eatery’s open-faced shelves, overlooking checkered tablecloths, floral accents, and curtains opening into a tranquil front porch.
