Hoppin Johns & other New Year's Food

Jane | Jan 5, 2004 12:43 PM

I'm curious as to how many of you ate Hoppin Johns, collards, colcannon or other traditional New Year's foods at Brooklyn restaurants? Did you find restaurants with great traditional menus? (Other than what I've mentioned).

Also, does anyone know where the name Hoppin Johns comes from or what it means? (other than what the food is).

Thanks!
